Ottawa Senators forward Peter Schaefer has been fined $2,500 by the league for waving a towel on the bench in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Washington Capitals, in effect surrendering to the officials.

Schaefer took a page from legendery coach Roger Neilson, who during a 1982 playoff game against the Blackhawks felt his team was unfairly penalized. He took a white trainer's towel and held it on a hockey stick, as if to wave a white flag. Three other Canucks players did the same thing, and all were ejected from the game.

Senators coach Bryan Murray wasn't pleased with Wednesday's penalty-filled game which saw each team whistled 11 times.
