It’s been a week since the St. Louis Blues defeated the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals, but there’s no bad blood between the two cities.

St. Louis Children’s Hospital just sent 200 Build-A-Bear bears to Boston Children’s Hospital, as what they say is a thank you for a Stanley Cup tournament well-played.

Yeah, this is better than a handshake line.

St. Louis Children’s Hospital decided to do this project before the finals even started, regardless of whether they won. They teamed up with Build-A-Bear, who donated the bears to the cause.

The bears will go to children at the Boston Children’s Hospital as well as other satellite locations.

“Along with Boston Children’s Hospital, we are proud to be among the nation’s top children’s hospitals — so regardless of who you root for or where you live, the kids are the real winners,” said Peggy Gordin, president of St. Louis Children’s Hospital, in a statement to CNN.

If you can’t have a Stanley Cup trophy, a bear will certainly do.
