Boston Bruins v. Montreal Canadiens (NHL)

Hockey is a physical sport under the best of circumstances, so when the Bruins and Canadiens meet on the ice, it turns into a boxing match. Two of the Originial 6 teams of the NHL, and consistently ranked high in the league each year, they have played more times against each other than any other match up in NHL history. The Canadiens have more Stanley Cup wins, and in fact have more than any other team in the league, but it doesn’t stop even the earliest regular season game from devolving into a fistfight. Past games have involved a near arrests, riots, breaking glass, and record amounts of penalty minutes.
