When coincidental minors had to be served teams like the Oilers with Gretzky etc preferred 5 on 4 or 4 on 3 late to tie or win. Likewise mid seventies Flyers.
Look at the regular season 5 minute OT after regulation ties. 4 on 4 creates more open ice and wider/easier shooting lanes.
6 on 5, the ideal situation is getting the puck to the open skater. The more skaters on the ice the harder it is to find open ice and the open skater.
