This is it, loser leaves Scranton forever.
Jenna Fischer and Steve Carell each posted photos showing support for the St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins, respectively, ahead of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday. Both played beloved characters on the long-running sitcom “The Office.”
Fischer, who played Pam Beesly and is originally from St. Louis, was already engaged in a friendly spat with John Krasinski, a real-life Bruins fan who played her fictional husband, Jim Halpert, on the show.
She posted a picture of one of TV’s favorite couples in their team jerseys ahead of Game 7 with some well-meaning smack talk.

“The Office” feud between St. Louis/Boston transcends hockey and dates back to the sitcom’s first season.
“This feud has been going on for a long time between us,” Fischer told NBC during the first intermission of Game 6 on Sunday. “When we were shooting the show the Red Sox and Cardinals were in the World Series, and (actress) Phyllis (Smith) and I were in my trailer rooting for the Cardinals, and he had (actor) BJ (Novak) and Steve Carell in his trailer cheering for the Red Sox, and they swept us in four.
“It’s my turn. It is my turn to rub it in his face.”
