The NHL's greatest and oldest rivalry in Canada is between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens.

These two Original 6 clubs have combined for 37 Stanley Cup championships, and they have squared off in 15 playoff series, including five meetings in the Cup Final.

Much like New York and Boston, this rivalry extends beyond sports since Toronto and Montreal are the two largest cities in Canada and also have two different primary languages.

If the 2013 NHL season ended today, the Canadiens and Leafs would play each other in the first round of the playoffs, which would be their first postseason meeting since 1979. Now that both teams are playoff contenders again, expect this rivalry to become much more exciting and intense over the next few years.

Here are the 10 best moments of this epic rivalry, in no particular order.
