It's only 5 on 4 for 4:00 if the same player got 2 penalties because you want to avoid putting in a substitute if possible.
That's what I thought. I was scorekeeping a game when this happened and I instinctively put the 5-on-3 on the scoreboard, which led to a long delay because the ref wanted a 4:00 PP. I'm not sure what happened there... maybe he got mixed up in the penalties and called out something wrong.
