BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Torey Krug and the Bruins are getting max effort from their opponents every single night, but they've responded with at least a point in 17 straight games at 13-0-and-4.

Krug says he's happy other teams are motivated--that means you're good!

"It comes with the territory," he said. "You want to be the best team in this league, you want to work your way into the top echelon of teams, then people are going to get up and play against you."

Tuukka Rask will be in net for the B's last game before the All-Star Break tonight in Ottawa at 7:30. Senators have had a tough year - just 39 points. That's 16 out of a Wild Card spot.

The clubs have faced off once - about a month ago at the Garden in a 5-1 triumph for the Black and Gold.

Patrice Bergeron's expected to play despite his illness, but his linemate Brad Marchand won't. The B's leading scorer was hit with a 5-game suspension for elbowing Marcus Johansson in the head Tuesday. And of course Charlie McAvoy's out after a heart procedure.

Boston's won 4 in a row. That matches Ottawa's skid.
