You're missing the point. Even when Howe did not fight, his dirty play influenced the outcome on the scoreboard. Same with Bob Clarke. Same with Ulf Samuelsson. Same with Vlad Konstantinov.

The reason the score was what it was tonight was because of the way Kasparaitis manipulated Brashear through his, Kaspar's, play, so don't tell me "the game is won on the scoreboard, not by taking out star players." The runs a player takes at star players (or ANY players for that matter) effect the scoreboard. The two cannot be separated.
