USA-CAN, and it's not even close.

Every recent Canadian and US NHL player and serious prospect have played with and/or against each other since they were peewees, in exhibition games, tournaments, minor junior, major junior, NCAA, WJC, etc. That constant exposure to each other has built a huge cross-border rivalry.

There's nothing more gratifying for an American hockey team than to beat a Canadian team, and nothing stings more for a Canadian team than losing to Americans.
