Blues fan Fischer taunts Krasinski about 'going home with Stanley'

'The Office' co-star chirps her on-screen beau, a big Bruins fan

Imagine "The Office," but if Pam married Stanley instead of Jim.

Actress Jenna Fischer, a dedicated St. Louis Blues fan who played Pam Beesly on the long-running sitcom from 2005-2013, tweeted a joke Friday at Boston Bruins fan and former "Office" co-star John Krasinski, who played Beesly's co-worker and eventual husband, Jim Halpert.

Perhaps emboldened by the Blues' 2-1 victory in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Thursday, Fischer made a reference to "going home with Stanley."

Tweet from @jennafischer: Uh oh.@johnkrasinski Looks like Pam might be going home with Stanley. Who would have guessed! #StanleyCup #LetsGoBlues

Stanley Hudson, a very GIF-able character from the sitcom who was played by actor Leslie David Baker, is still a fan favorite.

But that's not the Stanley that Fischer was referencing, of course. 

Stanley Hudson famously likes Pretzel Day.

Tweet from @theofficenbc: Happy #NationalPretzelDay to Stanley.

The Stanley Cup could probably hold a lot of pretzels.

The Blues can bring home the Stanley Cup with a win in Game 6 in St. Louis on Sunday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, TVAS, CBC).
