The objectives of the game from the perspective of the players and those that control the game are quite different.
In any given game those that control the NHL don't care who wins only how the game is viewed by the customer. Two men pummeling each other sells product.
As to whether it affects outcome who knows but I guess that it depends on the context - like hard hits and "big" saves and stupid penalties.
