Capitals' Hathaway faces potential suspension for spitting

WASHINGTON (AP) Getting thrown out of the game probably won't be the end of Garnet Hathaway's punishment for spitting on an opponent.

The Washington Capitals forward could be suspended, or at the very least fined, for spitting on Anaheim Ducks defenseman Erik Gudbranson toward the end of a brawl Monday night. Officials gave Hathaway a match penalty that carries with it an ejection and an automatic suspension pending review by the NHL office.

Asked after the Capitals' 5-2 victory if he expected further discipline, Hathaway said, "I think time will tell with that." He added he regretted spitting on Gudbranson.
