October was a weird month. A snowstorm ravaged the Northeast at the end of the month. The Red Sox somehow weren’t in the playoffs. The Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins started the season 3-7-0.

Then, the calendar turned to November. OK, it’s still a weird month. Temperatures are unseasonably warm. The Red Sox lost Jonathan Papelbon. The B’s have gone 6-0-0 to improve to 9-7-0.

Yes, the Bruins won their sixth straight game in the month of November, beating the New Jersey Devils 4-3.

Benoit Pouliot, despite being a healthy scratch the previous game, scored the game-winner with less than five minutes to go in the game on Johan Hedberg, who got the start in net for New Jersey.

David Clarkson got the scoring starting midway through the second, tallying his fifth goal on the power play. Chris Kelly answered with a goal of his own minutes later.

Brad Marchand, who was benched for a portion of the second period after committing his second penalty, scored six seconds into the third period. The 2-1 lead was short-lived, though.

The Devils’ Nick Palmieri scored two tiebreaking goals in the third period, sandwiching a rare goal from winger Shawn Thornton.

In the end, Thomas finished with 27 saves to nab the win.

The Bruins next take the ice Thursday to play the Blue Jackets. Daniel Paille could return to action.
