Also from personal experience, since it was my first playoff series that I've ever been to, I'd have to give an honorable mention to the Isles/Leafs rivalry that stemmed out of the 2002 Playoffs. That was bad blood until the bitter end. When Darcy Tucker took out Michael Peca, Isles fans wanted his head on a stake.
That was Tomas Kloucek, not Purinton
