    How long will it take? On the basis they play every regular game?

    Assuming they don't play each other in the playoffs they should meet 3-5 times in a season.

    They are likely heading each other 4-7 times per every playoffs run, so it could be over and done within next season.

    How do they have different records head to head?

    Because if you beat one team twice, once in regulation and once in overtime, your record is 2-0-0 while theirs is 0-1-1. Add up the total losses and it equals the amount of the other team's wins.

    There's no way they'll play 29 times before the end of next season.

    If we're counting playoffs it could potentially be as early as 2021-22, assuming they meet twice in the playoffs and play 7 games both times, along with the 15 regular season games over 3 years.

    If not counting playoffs, looking at over 6 years into the future.

    This has really been an absolutely fantastic rivalry in the NHL the past 10-15 years. One of the best ones ever.

    And I get that "rivalry" is a bit of a strong word because the 2 players don't necessarily hate each other or even feel like they compete directly - but it helps that there's been so many matchups and that they meet in playoffs so often. It's also been filled with great performances by both guys in head to heads.

    I hope there's more special moments to come between the 2.

    Odds are they blow through 100 games in the next 3-4

    That should end only one way - Both will play together in Pittsburgh (or Washington) and they will win another Cup.
