Marchand went to hit Rangers defenceman Jacob Trouba late in the second period when he ran into Trouba’s outstretched elbow.
He left briefly in the third period before eventually returning, but it was the timing of the spotter pulling him which had Marchand upset.
“That’s embarrassing. I mean, they had 30 minutes, 20 minutes to sit there and review the tape and call that in, but they made me come out in a 2-1 game as we’re starting to get momentum to do that,” Marchand told Joe McDonald of The Athletic.
“Guy’s up there busy eating pizza and cheeseburgers and can’t watch the game, so maybe next time pull his head out of his butt and watch the game.”
Marchand eventually walked back on his comments in a tweet later Friday night.
David Krejci eventually won the game for Boston in overtime as the Bruins took the game 3-2.
Marchand was held off the scoresheet and logged 19:43 of ice time.
