Foster called the spitting uncommon and a "huge offense." In a game that surpassed chippy and got dangerous because of heavy hitting from both teams, misconduct is not entirely unexpected.
Still, the behavior seemed to surprise Foster.
"You take that as sign of major disrespect," Foster told The Fan. "I don't care what venue you're in -- basketball, football, hockey, or you're at your neighborhood bar -- spitting on somebody is unacceptable."
