As any Southern Californian will tell you, the real rivalry is NOT with NorCal (although they seem to think so..).
There is a rivalry that lies much closer then San Jose and San Francisco. It lies between the southern neighbor of Orange County and the L.A. Basin.
It's a clash of different cultures, lifestyles and hockey teams all in one.
It's still a young rivalry and it's one that hasn't even hit its peak yet. But it's one that has had its great share of moments and doesn't lack any of the intensity you would come to expect from crosstown rivals.
