Like his beloved Bruins, Boston fan John Krasinski also fell short in his Stanley Cup shade war against former “Office” co-star and St. Louis Blues fanatic Jenna Fischer.
Ahead of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, which took place in Boston on Wednesday night, Krasinski, who played Jim Halpert on the NBC sitcom, continued his back-and-forth banter with Fischer, who portrayed his on-screen love interest Pam Beesly. Taking to social media, Krasinski posted a video message to Fischer capping it off with a cameo from the ultimate troll.
“Jenna Fischer, I know we’ve been having our ups and downs recently, and I just wanted to say I’m really sorry you’re not here. This is your seat right here,” Krasinski said, pointing to an empty seat beside him. “I was really bummed that you couldn’t make it, but honestly, let’s just have the best team win.”
As Krasinski, 39, continued to film his video, he was briefly interrupted as actor David Denman, who played Pam’s ex-fiancé Roy Anderson, took Fischer’s seat.
Fischer, 45, later replied on Twitter, writing, “Ha. Ha. Ha. Well played. Just be careful he doesn’t leave you at the game.”
The Blues went on to top the Bruins, 4-1, scoring the franchise’s first Stanely Cup win. Fischer celebrated with one last playful dig at Krasinski.
Sharing a video on Instagram, Fischer decorated a blue and yellow cake as Laura Branigan’s song “Gloria” played in the background. “Gloria,” which had become the Blues’ unofficial playoff jam during their post-season run, was also written on Fischer’s cake.
“John Krasinski, I’ve got my ‘Gloria’ cake and I’m going to eat it, too,” Fischer said in the clip.
