The times posted aren't confirmed as yet. The 24-hour rule, to my knowledge, was never a concrete principle. There seems to be a policy of 21 hours. An example of when the Flyers played twice with starting times less than 24 hours apart (under the prior CBA):

I think, too, it depends on travel issues. IIRC, the NHL has/had a 2-hour travel window where games could be played similar to the possible first two games of this season if the traveling team (Flyers) had a trip of under two hours (Philly to Buffalo, for example). And perhaps with the condensed schedule, the rules will be adjusted slightly which is something the NHLPA would likely scrutinize.
