Hathaway was given a match penalty and thrown out for spitting on Anaheim's Erik Gudbranson during a fight in the second period. Officials were attempting to separate players when Gudbranson rabbit-punched Hathaway , who then spit in his face with referee Peter MacDougall a few feet away.

"That's about as low as you can take a path, really," Gudbranson told reporters. "It's a bad thing to do. It's something you don't just do in our game. And he did it."

There was a long delay, in which the goal initially was not put up on the scoreboard. But eventually it was, and the referee announced the match penalty.

"It has no place," Hathaway said. "It was an emotional play by me. You don’t plan any of that stuff in your head. It was a quick reaction and unfortunately, the wrong one from me after a sucker punch."

All told, 50 penalty minutes were assessed, including a game misconduct to Ritchie and a misconduct to Gudbranson.

The Ducks were initially incensed by Leipsic's hit on Grant and three Ducks players tangled with him behind the net. Hathaway picked up the puck and fed Stephenson, who beat goalie John Gibson with a wrist shot.

Leipsic said he thought his hit was clean.

"I thought the puck was right there," he told reporters. "It was kind a big blackout after that when everyone starts getting whipped around and stuff. I didn't even know that (Stephenson) scored until the dust was all settled. It's nice to get a goal of it, too."

The Capitals killed off the five-minute match penalty and won 5-2.
