Realizing that more penalties could not be served under the existing rules, Neilson put too many men on the ice every ten seconds. The referees stopped the play and a faceoff was held relieving pressure on the defence.
Smart, but at the same time...wouldn't that lead to a never-ending 5 on 3? (barring PP goals). Perhaps I'm missing something.

The two you posted later are indeed brilliant though.
