Well, it was an English Canada vs French Canada thing (real or perceived) for a very long time.

Between the advent of more teams, the lack of recent Montréal-Toronto playoff series, and Anglos generally being less hostile towards the French* (there's still some there, but we've come a long way), it is fairly easy to see why that rivalry has cooled somewhat.

*And vice-versa, of course
