You can't - it isn't transferred past the router, and it isn't good for machine ID anyway: it isn't globally unique - it only has to be unique to the local segment - and it is extremely easy to "spoof".
The only way to get the MAC is to run software on the same local LAN segment, normally on the client: and you can't do that in Chrome. You can do it in IE via ActiveX under exceptional circumstances, but ActiveX was so abused that it doesn't run on hardly any machines anymore, and does not run on Chrome, FireFox, or Opera at all.

Brower does not deal with your client machine ever, Browser is just the Media between server and your machine, it just render pages, send and receive request, from browser ONLY.
So I guess, it is OUT OF browser scope
