I gotta go with Habs/Bruins, Leafs just aren't a good enough team the last couple seasons to make it seem intense or give a chance of the teams meeting in the playoffs.

The Habs play the Bruins pretty well every playoffs, and I think as of rigth now I hate the Bruins more than the Leafs.

I too believe the Habs/Bruins one is a good rivalry.

No rivalry in hockey has as rich of a history as Montreal/Toronto. It goes beyond just hockey, its anglo ontario vs french quebec.

While the two teams havent met in the playoffs since 79, and the leafs havent made the playoffs the past 5 seasons, I think that the hate between Hab and Leaf fans will burn forever as both consider themselves the hockey mecca.

dont mean to knock other cities or teams, but hockey without montreal and toronto just isnt hockey.

There is no "I" in team, but there is an "M" and an "E".

I agree with you matt. watching a montreal vs toronto game is like watching your two favourite fighters go at it for the belt every time, you can feel it in your stomache. Now thats good hockey...

Agreed, even though recent games between the Bruins and Habs have been serious battles....over the years, few NHL Rivalries come close to matching that of the Leafs and Canadiens.

The only thing I can really compare it to is the rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox.

Both the Leafs and Habs take their game to different levels when they play each other, and whether its in Toronto, or in Montreal...the arena is always electric!

Ya the boston and montreal games get pretty hairy too, I like how the washington and pitty games are getting more and more gritty too. Any rivalry is good for the NHL...

Battle of Alberta; easy

09-10 is the first season that one team has ever swept the other; and games are always pretty gritty. AND Souray broke his hand on Iginla's face! I'm 90% sure that guy is a robot.

And who doesn't like Blue Shirts vs Red Shirts?

T.O/ Montreal; and Pens/ Caps are the runners up

The arena wall in chicago should be credited with a goal.

Maybe i'm just out of it , but i've never really noticed too much hate between the wings and preds. So i'm questioning their presence on this list

Its not worth winning if you cant win big!

anyone that says Montreal and the Leafs aren't a good rivalry are pretty young.. check the 60's. Both teams dominated the cup.. they had to have built a rivalry back then.. but yeah since then not so much I would agree so I'd have to go with Habs/Boston. The Habs have had some wicked games with them over the years and I SO loaaaaaathe the Booins!

What about Tampa Bay and Florida? Don't they have some sort of state rivalry?

i was in Nashville in november to see a habs preds game then a titans bills game and the thing about the preds and wings is there was a gm plant put in Nashville and all sorts of Detroit locals were transferd there, hence Detroit fans in Nashville,, the Nashvillians i spoke with call them pred wing fans because they go to most of the preds games and the only sell outs in Nashville are wings preds games.,... where the wings fans are the majority, hence the hatred of preds fans towards wing fans ,, because the wings fans take over the preds rink ,, which btw is actually a really nice rink at a absolutly amazing location
