**Here are a couple of hints to grasp the penalty termination concept:**

* Take note of the first minor penalty time which properly goes onto the penalty clock.* As long as that penalty is being served, it terminates if that team is scored upon and they are below the on-ice numerical strength of the scoring team. The order of subsequent penalties doesn’t matter.

* Make sure your Penalty Timekeeper doesn’t put coincident minors on the penalty clocks.* This will really complicate your decision-making, and selling your call, if times show on the clock and both teams are still skating at full strength.
