Coincidental Penalties

2 posts in this topic

Coincidental penalties occur at exactly 10:00 and the teams skate 5x5.  If the whistle blows at 8:00, are they eligible to leave the box then or do they need to wait for the next whistle?

I think they're eligible to leave at 8:00 but I think the common misnomer is they need to wait for "the first whistle after" 8:00.

That would be 1 minute 59 seconds, so they couldn't leave the box until a whistle at 7:59 or later.
