Pam Beesly got the last laugh, quite literally, after the St. Louis Blues won the 2019 Stanley Cup.

Actress and St. Louis native Jenna Fischer, best known for her role as the receptionist on the sitcom "The Office" had an ongoing feud with her on-screen husband and Boston Bruins fan John Krasinski during the Cup Final.

And when the Blues ended their 51-season title drought with a 4-1 win in Game 7 on Wednesday, Fischer went in hard on her old co-worker, taunting Krasinski via Instagram with a blue and yellow "Gloria" cake, a nod to the Blues victory song.

She had reason to get after Krasinski.

Earlier in the night, he posted a video lamenting that she could not be in attendance at Game 7 before revealing that he was watching alongside another "Office" co-star, David Denman, who played Pam's first fiancee, Roy Anderson, on the show.

Fischer of course had a response, which fans of the show will certainly pick up on.

"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."

Krasinski had even more Boston backup before Game 7. Steve Carell, who played the boss, Michael Scott, on the show, tweeted a picture of himself in a Bruins cap without comment.

But as it turns out, the girl from reception rubbed all of their faces in it this time.

Tweet from @jennafischer: I love you St. Louis! I love all of you who watched this game at Enterprise Center. I love all of you who watched in the pouring rain from Busch Stadium. From viewing parties and at home! We All Bleed Blue! Congratulations @StLouisBlues Stanley Cup Winners! https://t.co/sGib9JunPl
