The Islanders already had one game -- their November 1 game in San Jose -- on NBCSN and more could be scheduled.
"The NFL is going to go a whole season without flexing on Sunday Night Football," NBC Sports Executive Producer Sam Flood told Newsday. "But there's a good chance they will flex into [another] Islanders game between now and the end of the season.
"We are plotting as we speak."
Adding Islander games would make sense since the they are one of the hottest teams in the NHL at the moment and don't look to be skewing from that anytime soon. Prior to the season NBC Sports said that things could change scheduling wise during the season.
"The schedule reflects that the Islanders did not make the playoffs last year," a spokesperson for the network told Islanders Point Blank in July. "But the schedule is subject to change and allows for teams to play their way onto it later in the year."
