Pittsburgh v. Philadelphia is always very very entertaining with horrible defense and goaltending.

Which one is more exciting/better to watch?

Also,
Canucks-Blackhawks played yesterday.
Flyers-Penguins played today.
I kinda like watching the blackhawks/canucks more cause I get waaay too stressed out watching pens/flyers.

That used to be the case, but the Habs don't seem to care about playing the Leafs that much anymore.

On the other hand the Leafs take the game like game 7 of the cup finals.

Now? Philly/Pittsburgh.

In 2010 and 2011? Chicago/Vancouver.

He stole that "bunk bed comment" from Jay Mohr (who hosted the NHL awards in 2011). Pathetic ferret can't even come up with his own material.

Pitt/Philly, not even close.

The battle of PA.

Not only that, PA is the most diverse state in the entire country... you have Philly people who are east coasters with that type of personality and Pitt people who are more like the Midwest with more of a relaxed type of personality. To get these very different fanbases together who share a state is totally worth the price of admission.

I have tons of family in the western PA area so I have witnessed the intensity that this rivalry can bring.

Pretty much...I still enjoy playing the leafs though, despite their dirty cheap shots.

Chicago happened to win the last game...both of the games this season went to shootouts, I'd say we're fairly close in calibre.

Nah, became less exciting when both teams got slower at moving the puck.

Definitely Philly-Pitts is more heated.
When I lived in Hershey, which is pretty close to Harrisburg. I never, and I am not exaggerating, saw a Penguins jersey nor a Steelers hat or anything that indicates they like Pittsburgh. Out east (Wilkes-Barre excluded) it it appears to be exclusive Flyers country just like the far West of PA is Pittsburgh. I never saw a Pens fan in Harrisburg.
Then again, that was before all the Bandwagon hype surrounding Malkin,Fleury and Crosby.

Agreed. Not that I'm complaining, the Canucks are a much better team vs Chicago when they don't play the speed game.
