The following examples will teach you how to perform the tasks involved in most games:

Two-minute warm-up.  Press Set Time, 2, 0, 0, Enter.  Press Start.

Twelve-minute first period.  Press Set Time, 1, 2, 0, 0, Enter.  Press Period, 1, Enter.  On face-offs, press Start.  On whistles and manual horns (e.g., shift changes in House Program), press Stop.

One minute penalty on Home Team's Player #14.  Under HOME, press Player Penalty, Enter, 1, 0, 0, Enter, 1, 4, Enter.  (In House Program, press Disable Penalty Timers when penalized player's line is not on the ice, except during last four minutes of game, when penalties run through other lines' shifts.)
