An Atlantic Division team vs another Atlantic Division team. I'm pretty sure they are the closest division in the Big 4 sports, so it's pretty easy to get a large crowd.

There are always a ton of Habs fans at Western Canadian games - I've never seen another team be represented as well as the Habs out there.
Then again they are who I watch, so I'd notice stuff like that. I'm not sure if other Canadian teams are that well represented out there.
The past few years Vancouver fans have flocked & filled the Coyotes, Ducks, Kings & Sharks games. In certain cases its actually cheaper to go down, stay in those cities & buy tickets then it is to just get tickets to a Vancouver game.
Pittsburgh in Washington. Sunday's game has Let's Go Pens chants going on, tiwce
Was listening to that game at work and there were times I couldn't tell the difference between a Caps goal and a Pens goal by the crowd's reaction. Had to wait to find out if the goal horn+siren was coming or not before I knew.
