That win felt like a loss.

A win feeling like a loss is an absurdity.

A win is a win. There are no asterisks by that win. Its still two points.

Is it better to come from behind to tie a game only to lose it in OT?

What TB did was win a moral victory. Alas, you do not get two points for a moral victory. Only the Habs got the two points.

The negativity amazes me at times.

The positive from last night that made this a GREAT win was that the Habs did what 98% of the fans here did not think was possible.....win in a shootout.

And for overcoming their biggest deficiency in close games to get two points, a lot of people look at the win as a loss. Sad that a vocal part of the fanbase is so cynical and depressed even in victory.
