Krasinski keeps up feud with Fischer, invites 'someone else' to Game 7

John Krasinski continued his online feud with Jenna Fischer by threatening to invite someone other than his wife from "The Office" to the deciding game between the St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins on Wednesday.

Krasinski, a Bruins fan from Boston, has been dueling with the St. Louis-born Fischer throughout the Stanley Cup Final. Fischer gained the upper hand after the Blues' 2-1 win and tweeted to Krasinski that Pam (her character on the show) would be taking Stanley to Game 6. But Krasinski regained bragging rights after Boston evened the best-of-7 series with a 5-1 win in Game 6. 

The Boston-St. Louis rivalry between Krasinski and Fischer dates back to their first season on the sitcom, when the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals played in the 2004 World Series. The series split up the set, with Fischer and Phyllis Smith supporting the Cardinals and Krasinski, BJ Novak and Steve Carell rooting for Boston.

"This feud has been going on for a long time between us," Fischer told NBC during the first intermission of Game 6. "When we were shooting the show the Red Sox and Cardinals were in the World Series, and Phyllis and I were in my trailer rooting for the Cardinals, and he had BJ and Steve Carell in his trailer cheering for the Red Sox, and they swept us in four."

Fischer is hoping the Blues win their first championship in 52 years in the NHL, partially so she could have bragging rights against Krasinski.

"It's my turn," Fischer said. "It is my turn to rub it in his face."
