My guess would be no but we need a ruling on this one.
They do count them. On the link you provided it says 10 goals given up 5 on 5 and 8 4 on 5. nhl.com says it's 21 against. Yes, it is dumb but yes, they do count. That is why technically Sens were the highest scoring team last year, not Montreal, which is often said as a mistake.

To me, if it does not count on a goalies stats or a players stats it should not count on team stats.

The shootout goals do NOT count towards a team total.

The only reason they are ever used is for standings tiebreakers. If two teams are tied in the standings, then goals differential is a tiebreaker.....and this is the only time shootout goals actually count.

Which is why they are listed in the standings.

If you want the actual team goals scored and against, you go to the teams stats page - not the standings.
