NHL fines Sabres' Neuvirth $2,000 for diving/embellishment

Goalies have been called a lot of things, but "diver/embellisher" hasn't been one of them -- until now.

The NHL has fined Sabres goaltender Michal Neuvirth $2,000 for diving/embellishment. The incident occurred Sunday against Nashville when Neuvirth drew a goaltender interference call against Mike Santorelli. The video is below.

The NHL Hockey Operations Department began a crackdown against diving this season. Hockey Ops issued Neuvirth a warning following an incident Nov. 15 against Toronto, and Sunday's second citation drew the fine.
