Islanders and Devils both share their hate towards the Rangers. It's pretty cool, actually.

Vancouver and the Habs typically support the Bruins. They are nice and never biased, too.
Sorry we're so hard on you guys..
Vancouver and Chicago I find fascinating. These two teams (and fanbases) absolutely hate each other, but there's an interesting measure of respect that's developed over the years.
It's been one of the NHL's premier rivalry for the last few years, they've gone to absolute war with each other and have both experienced the highest of highs and lowest of lows at the hands of the other team. They're reluctant to admit it, but these teams bring out the best in the each other and the game of hockey.
Ottawa-Boston. Both teams have the same mortal enemies in the Leafs and Sens. Plus the connections of former management (Chiarelli - brother of city councilman), and well-liked former players (Chara and Kelly).
This is all pretty new, but Jets fans get along well with Minnesota Wild fans. Until next year, I suppose.
This. I was thrilled to see Winnipeg get the Jets back (sorry Thrashers fans) and have cheered them on ever since. Well until next season those games will be awesome I can't wait! I want the jets to win the Southeast this year so they can raise the Southeast division championship banner in the rafters!
This isn't exactly what you're talking about, but I've found that Vancouver fans get along pretty well with Sharks fans and Sabres fans on hfboards. It's probably because we all share the same frustrations.
Also most of the Canucks fans that I know root for Tampa Bay or the Habs as a secondary team.
