    Newark, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Martin Brodeur made 15 saves to notch his second shutout in as many starts, as the New Jersey Devils downed the Nashville Predators, 5-0, on Sunday at Prudential Center.

    Jaromir Jagr and Marek Zidlicky each registered a goal and an assist, while Travis Zajac, Cam Janssen and Mattias Tedenby added a goal apiece for the Devils, who have won two of their last three games.

    Carter Hutton allowed all five goals on 23 shots for the Predators, who went 0-for-6 on the power play and dropped their second straight game via shutout.

    Jagr opened the scoring 1:30 into the game with his 1,700th career point, as he picked up the puck just above the right circle and made his way through the slot before wristing a shot from the left circle that snuck under the glove of Hutton.

    The Devils struck again early in the second, as Ryan Carter was denied on a nifty backhand chance, but Janssen was there to jam in the rebound for a 2-0 lead at 2:54.

    New Jersey padded the lead on the power play just under six minutes later when Zidlicky rifled a heavy slapper from above the right circle that sailed past Hutton to make it 3-0 just five seconds after Nashville's Seth Jones was sent off for hooking.

    The Devils then killed off a pair of power plays early in the third before Zajac buried a one-timer from the low left side at 12:57 for a 4-0 lead.

    Tedenby tallied with under a minute left to account for the final margin.

    GAME NOTES:
    Jagr now has 1,701 points in his NHL career, more than any other active player ... Brodeur recorded a 22-save shutout against the Flyers on Nov. 7 and now has 123 career shutouts, which is the most in NHL history ... Nashville has been shut out four times this season ... New Jersey went 1-for-4 on the power play.
