Despite the many rumors of an eventual reboot, “The Office” has been off the air for a while now, and the cast has largely moved on.

Of course, Pam got the last laugh, as the Blues escaped Boston with a shutout and their first Stanley Cup championship! Here’s hoping those two love birds can set their rivalry aside now, for the sake of their kids.
