The Nashville Predators were shut out for the second straight game Sunday night in a 5-0 decision against the New Jersey Devils.

New Jersey's Jaromir Jagr scored 90 seconds into the game to become just the eighth player to reach 1,700 career points in NHL history.

Goaltender Martin Brodeur stopped 15 shots to notch his 123rd shutout of his career.

Jagr upped his career totals to 686 goals and 1,015 assists.

“We're not playing well defensively and giving up way too many chances,” Predators captain Shea Webber said. “We're giving up odd-man rushes and not helping out our goalie. We need to play solid defensively in order to get offense.”

Nashville goaltender Carter Hutton stopped 18 shots in the loss.  He falls to 8-7-2 on the season.

The Predators continue their road trip Tuesday against the New York Islanders.
