Marchand has funny reaction to Panarin throwing his glove at him

Bruins

Emotions were high at TD Garden on Friday afternoon as the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers met for the first time this season in front of a national television audience.

The Rangers emerged with a 5-2 win thanks to a three-goal third period, highlighted by a go-ahead tally from Artemi Panarin that gave New York a 3-2 lead with 8:15 remaining.

Panarin also had a weird exchange with Bruins forward Brad Marchand in the final minutes of the game. The two veteran wingers were exchanging words from their benches when all of a sudden Panarin took off his left glove and threw it at Marchand.

Check out the scene in the video below:

Marchand's explanation for how the incident started was pretty funny.

Marchand is almost certainly being facetious with this response, and we'll probably never know the true reason behind Panarin's decision to toss his glove at the Bruins bench. But it was a memorable moment from a very entertaining matchup in Boston full of impressive goals and highlight-reel saves.
