assuming that the | character was a type and that you put a single quote
at the end of the second statement, the difference would be that the
first statement stops NetworkManager daemon and the second one starts
it.

/sbin/service $SOME_initscript_located_in_/etc/init.d/ and
/etc/init.d/$SOME_initscript are essentially the same
