Top 10 NHL Rivalries

The Top Ten

1 Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins

Habs got nothing on the big bad Bruins and never will! Boston strong baby

Red Sox/Yankees of hockey. Still, I'm all for the Bruins.

Bruins can kiss my ass. Kill bruins. Shoot the bear.

Yea I'm for the Bruins. All Boston teams anyway and who cares that the Canadians have the most Stanley Cup wins? No one except you Montereal fans. Not cool. Let's go Boston!

2 Edmonton Oilers vs. Calgary Flames

Calgary is shameful to all of canada

Long time Flames fan, and I can say that we love to hate the Oilers.

3 Detroit Red Wings vs. Colorado Avalanche

No other rivalry will ever come close to what these two teams went through. It was pure hatred.

detroit red wings have long rival vs colorado avalanche because between in march 26th 1997 call it brawl in hockeytown

4 Philadelphia Flyers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Best rivalry, first the flyers win than the pens win then so on

I'm a flyer and since I was 4 I hated the rangers their overrated terrible losing team and they think the same thing about us

Pens fan who is embarrassed that the flyers are in the same state. Classic Good guy (Penguins) vs Bad guy (flyers).

We hate the flyers because they suck and embarrass us.
They hate us because we're good and embarrass them.

5 Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Ottawa Senators
6 Montreal Canadiens vs. Quebec Nordiques

Quebec City deserves a team, if they were actually in the league this rivalry would be 1!

Old timers

7 Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Rangers

Its not a big rivaly

8 New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders

"Potvin sucks". 'enough said

Not even close, Islanders vs Rangers is the best

its not

9 Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens

Should be near to of the list but new NHL rules as well as inconsistent playoff time for both teams looks good for future playoff for both teams

Pretty low on the list...Should be #1 or #2

It should number 2 or 3

9? Really?

10 Chicago Blackhawks vs. Detroit Red Wings

How is this anything lower than 5?

Classic dislike which the NHL ruined.

Bruh they each have a chant for the other and how they suck

The Contenders

The biggest rivalry in the last 5 years

Sid the kid vs the great 8

Best rivalry in nhl

As SOON as we started winning the rangers began to hate LETS GO DEVILS!
