Considering the differences in level of the two teams and the fact that they have only played one meaningful game in recent memory, there is just no way you can speak of any kind of rivalry between these two countries.

Also, there is and has been pretty deep cooperation between Hungarians and Slovaks in hockey for years. There have been loads of Slovak coaches/players playing in Hungary and vice versa quite a few Hungarian young players have spent some of their development in Slovakia. Asides from Nové Zámky, there is a bunch of Hungarian teams playing in Slovak second U20 league this season.

I'd actually wager to say that the relationship between Slovaks and Hungarians is actually much better than in many other areas.
