Thus Leafs-Sabres games in Buffalo are attended by large crowds of Leafs fans.
Since the 1998–99 season, both teams have played in the Northeast Division, now the Atlantic Division.
The best known game in this rivalry occurred on February 22, 2007, which included a large fight that included both goaltenders and verbal sparring between the two coaches (Buffalo won the game 6–5).
The teams have met 4 times in the playoffs, with Buffalo winning three series, and Ottawa winning one.
In addition, Montreal had two teams representing its English-French divide.
The "French" Canadiens battled the "English" Wanderers (and later the Maroons).
In the early 2000s, both of these teams met four times in the playoffs with Toronto winning each series.
In 1999, the Sabres beat the Bruins in six games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals on their way to the Stanley Cup Finals, where they lost to the Dallas Stars in six games on Brett Hull's controversial goal.
The teams met in the opening round of the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs.
By that time, the league began expanding into the United States, and new rivalries were created. The economic turmoil of the Great Depression and World War II, however, forced several teams to fold, with the result that by 1942 the NHL consisted of only 6 teams.
From 1942–1967, only six teams (the Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Montreal Canadiens, Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers, and Toronto Maple Leafs) played in the NHL.
Rivalries also existed with other leagues, such as the Pacific Coast Hockey Association.
