On Wednesday night, the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup over the Boston Bruins, marking the first time the Blues have won in the history of the franchise. It was a big night for St. Louis fans, but it was arguably a bigger night for fans of The Office. Boston native John Krasinski was at Game 7 on Wednesday night and posted a video to his 2.4 million Instagram followers. The actor, who played Jim Halpert for nine seasons on fan favourite The Office, started the video by giving his former co-star and TV wife Jenna Fischer, a St. Louis native, a shout-out. “Jenna Fischer, I know we’ve been having our ups and downs recently,” said Krasinski, who filmed the video from his seat in at the TD Garden in Boston. “I just wanted to say, I’m really sorry you’re not here. This is your seat right here, and I was really bummed that you couldn’t make it. But listen, honestly? Let’s just have the best team win.”

Krasinski’s message to Fischer was interrupted by actor Dave Denman, whom The Office fans will recognize as Pam’s former fiance Roy, and one-time nemesis to Krasinski’s Jim before he and Pam admitted their feelings for each other to become one of TV’s most beloved couples. But all great love stories must come to an end and on Wednesday night we finally saw the one obstacle that Jim and Pam could not overcome. Hockey.
The hilarious video was capped off with a comment from Fischer, who wrote “Ha. Ha. Ha. Be careful he doesn’t leave you at the game.” Well played, Beasley. Fellow Office alum Angela Kinsey also commented on the video, writing ““Whaaaaaaaat the effing whaaaaaat?!!?” We know, Angela. Seeing Jim prank Pam instead of Dwight is pretty shocking.
The former co-stars have been busy roasting one another on social media as their teams squared off in the NHL finals this year, which Fischer getting the ball rolling with some truly exceptional Twitter trolling. Making it feel like Pretzel day, Fischer worked in Office puns, which we think are deserving of a yogurt lid gold medal.

Fischer has been a one-woman St. Louis cheering squad among The Office actors, with Steve Carell joining Krasinski and Denman in their allegiance to the Boston Bruins. We always wondered who Michael Scott would choose if, god forbid, Pam and Jim broke up.

As for Fischer’s response to the Blues winning, well, Krasinski had it coming.

The Office may have officially ended in 2013, but lives on in our hearts and thanks to streaming services, has found an entirely new audiences who didn’t catch it the first time around. This may not be The Office reboot we thought we were getting, but it’s one that we’ll happily accept. (For now. We do still want an actual reboot.)
