Pittsburgh: Philadelphia, Washington, Detroit, Montreal, Boston(to an extent)

All the other teams I can only think of like:

Vancouver : Chicago, Calgary, Colorado(not as much as it was in the early 00's)

Calgary : Edmonton, Vancouver, Chicago

Chicago: Vancouver, Detroit, Calgary

Is there any other team right now you think has more rivalries or the same. I can only think of Pittsburgh the one team that has as many as us, but like I said I dont know if Boston is that much of a rivalery to Pittsburgh though.
We do not have Rivalries with Philly and Pittsburgh. Some years there's lots of heat between us and them, some years it's plain boring i.e last game vs Philly.

This year we have more tension between Ottawa than we have against Boston, but I'm not gonna say we have a legitimate rivalry with them yet, since the only reason things are heated is because we've played them twice and I expect tomorrow's game to be a body-check festival more than the upcoming game vs the bruins.

These are the 'official rivalries' according to the NHL.

New Jersey Devils vs. Philadelphia Flyers
Philadelphia Flyers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders
New York Rangers vs. Philadelphia Flyers
New Jersey Devils vs. New York Rangers
Ottawa Senators vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
Buffalo Sabres vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
Boston Bruins vs. Montreal Canadiens
Buffalo Sabres vs. Ottawa Senators
Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens
Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Florida Panthers
Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Washington Capitals
Chicago Blackhawks vs. Detroit Red Wings
Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues
Detroit Red Wings vs. Nashville Predators
Calgary Flames vs. Edmonton Oilers
Calgary Flames vs. Vancouver Canucks
Anaheim Ducks vs. Los Angeles Kings
San Jose Sharks vs. Los Angeles Kings
Anaheim Ducks vs. San Jose Sharks
Chicago Blackhawks vs. Vancouver Canucks
