And it's a really stupid penalty to take because your goalie is more likely to stop a guy on a breakaway than he is to stop a penalty shot where the shooter can plan his move and take as much as time as he needs with no defensive pressure at all.
Unless the shooter is automatic like Giroux. I can't remember him missing on a breakaway.
