‎ The official jam clock stops at the end of each jam (on the fourth whistle).

While the period clock keeps running between jams, the jam clock stops. This is because it starts again reset to two minutes at the start of the next jam. This makes a lot of sense. However, it is important that the jam clock continue to run until the 4th whistle blast of the jam ending whistle signal. The jam is still on until the 4th whistle blast, and skaters are eligible for points and penalties while the jam is still on.
