Isaac Wellens and Ryan Krueger had power-play goals to put the Tigers up 2-0.
Marshfield pushed its lead to 3-0 on a short-handed goal by Nick Urban four minutes into the third period.
Baldwin-Woodville (18-4-2) responded with three goals in the next 6½ minutes to tie the game and it would finish in a 3-3 deadlock.
Marshfield finishes its regular-season schedule with a 16-7-1 record. The Tigers will open WIAA postseason play with a regional final at Chippewa Falls on Thursday.
