The two players were standing near the ends of their benches yelling at each other. Meanwhile, Panarin slipped off his left glove and aimed it with his bare hand. Hitting Marchand in the side.
The Bruins winger raised his arm in defense. “That one caught me off guard a little bit. I’ve had a lot of things thrown at me, but not particularly by players,” Marchand said after the game.
