There's wording in the CBA which applies in regular situations. Length of flight times is discussed within the normal travels of back-to-back games, too. In this case, being somewhat unique, the visiting team and NHL would have to approve and most likely the NHLPA, too. The home team can't just say "time switch." Though the current CBA is what matters, the situation is not without precedence. It happened at least two times: because of the 1993 and 2008 World Series.
