In this case, Islanders-New York Jets, who will play at the same time twice in the next five days.
The Jets host New England at 8:30 on Sunday while the Isles will face-off in Vancouver 30 minutes later.
On Thursday, the Isles host Montreal at 7:00 while the Jets will be in Denver for an 8:20 kick.
It's the first time the two teams have played at the same time since December 3, 2009. Matt Moulson's hat trick led the Isles to a 4-1 win in Atlanta that night while the Jets won 19-13 in Buffalo.
