Nah, the overhead showed pretty clear non-penalty GI (though not particularly serious). Wheeler bumped Lehtonen in the crease and made no effort to avoid him just prior to the shot. Being backed in is not an excuse to bump into the goalie - you must at least make an effort to avoid him if he's in his crease.

It's immaterial where they were when the goal was scored because it's a part of the same play where Wheeler bumped Lehtonen in the crease.

The rule is fairly inconsistently applied, but it is indeed the rule.
