I'm always a little impressed by Vancouver fans' showings at games in California.

I haven't been to a game in the (NYC) Tri-State area yet, but I'm sure they all travel well since they're so close.

Phoenix always appears to be at least half-full of Blackhawks fans whenever we play there. I think there have a lot of Chicago expats and snowbirds.

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.

I've been to a couple of southern arenas (PHX/LA/ANA/SJ/FLA/TB) and each time there was a lot of Habs fans.

NYR in the Coliseum is the only one I know from experience. A back and forth "Let's Go Rangers!" "Let's Go Islanders!" chant gets going and it's great.

Yep. The crowd was probably 60-40 NYI in the only NYR-NYI game I went there. Those chants are so fun.

I hate the Ranger fans that come to Long Island but damn it's impressive how loud they are.

Nordiques Nation fans anywhere. You can't get much more 'away' then they are.

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.

LA and SJ always show up in Anaheim. It's fun to see them file out when the Ducks win.

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.

Montreal fans represent quite well almost everywhere - but in florida and Ottawa - and even the buses that arrive from long island - it almost seems like a home game

Canuck presence in California is crazy; Honda Center in particular is susceptible to takeovers. Anaheim is generally a home game for the Canucks.

Seemed like there were a ton of Rangers fans in Tampa over the weekend. Had to do a double take to see where they were playing when Nash scored.

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.
