Brad Marchand scored twice as the Boston Bruins lit up the scoreboard for the fourth game in a row, outgunning the visiting Edmonton Oilers 6-3 Thursday night.

The latest outburst secured the Bruins their first four-game winning streak of the season, during which they've outscored their opponents by a 24-8 margin.

The teams combined for four goals during a five-minute, 20-second flurry in the first period. Johnny Boychuk and Jordan Caron scored 1:44 apart before Ryan Smyth put the Oilers on the board at 12:02, tipping in a Theo Peckham snapshot past Tuukka Rask.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins evened things up just 29 seconds later, whistling a shot past Rask as the trailer on a rush with Taylor Hall.

Marchand put the Bruins back ahead on a power play early in the second period, redirecting a Joe Corvo point shot past Devan Dubnyk.

Tyler Seguin was credited with doubling the advantage just 2 1/2 minutes later after a shot bounded off the end boards, hit Oilers defenseman Corey Potter in the skate and slid into the Edmonton net.

Smyth's second of the night – and seventh in the past six games – drew Edmonton within one at 15:18 of the third period as he converted on an Oilers power-play. Boston put the game away moments later, with Milan Lucic beating Dubnyk after Cam Barker took an interference penalty.

Marchand rounded out the scoring with a blistering shot past Dubnyk with 2:03 remaining.
