With the wounds of Wednesday night’s Stanley Cup loss still fresh, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” host Jimmy Fallon poked fun at Boston and congratulated St. Louis on their win during his opening monologue.

“Tough for people in Boston. They were like, ‘we might not win another championship for three to 12 months,” Fallon said.

The late night host did tease St. Louis, joking that fans there “got drunk” and “flipped over the [Gateway] Arch.”

The Bruins lost to the St. Louis Blues, 4-1, Wednesday night at TD Garden in Game 7, giving the Blues their first Stanley Cup in 52 years as a franchise.
