To suggest that a team that "loses" the shootout somehow "lost" the hockey game is absurd. Hell they awarded Bernier a shutout for a game he allegedly lost according to you.
How could a goalie possibly LOSE a game in which he allowed zero goals?
By getting beat in the shootout, of course. Was that supposed to be a trick question?
