Sammy Clingan had given the visitors an early first-half lead, which held until Ryan McGivern equalised in the 84th minute.
Jude Winchester then restored the away side's advantage straightaway before Leigh Griffiths flicked in an equaliser under 60 seconds later.
Although, while Shiels was insistent about the entertainment levels in Scottish football, he could not promise that a similar match would be played out when the two teams meet in the William Hill Scottish Cup on Sunday.
"It was a great game of football," said Shiels.
"Hibs made a great contribution, it's good to see them playing good football and I thought they were terrific last Sunday.
"The game that we brought to the SPL two years ago as the pioneers of the passing game, it's good to see other teams doing it and it is making the football more enjoyable up here. The SPL is a great product at the moment.
"Football is not like other sports, it is not one dimensional. There are so many variables, so I cannot say what Sunday is going to be like.
"It is 11 versus 11, you've got to have players on form and the work ethic to be good.
"There are so many things that go into making a game of football, that's what makes it the best sport in the world.
"Who knows what way Sunday will go? You can't call any of the games."
