A shootout loss is a loss. Not a win. Not a tie. A LOSS.
After a shoot out loss I usually say "At least we got a point"
People that are complaining about 3 point games don't do it when it helps their teams. The issue is that
teams get points. When the Kings get one or two points people are either happy or not so upset. When the Ducks and Avs each get points in a game and the Stars and Wild each get at least one point the same night that is when Kings fans get upset. That is why most of us deep down hate the the OT point system. Our team has gone 8 games without a regulation loss and has gained no ground on the rest of the teams because everybody is getting points every night.
