Brayden Schenn deflected an Andrej Meszaros shot past Martin Brodeur in the first period and goaltender Ray Emery made 14 saves, as last-place Philadelphia perhaps authored its most complete effort of the season.
The fight-filled 7-0 loss to the Capitals may have just sparked a lifeless team, as Philadelphia peppered Brodeur, starting his season-high third consecutive game, and dominated long stretches of play. Brodeur finished with 20 saves.
New Jersey came up empty on five power-play opportunities. Emery, who gave up four goals on 15 shots and fought Washington's Braden Holtby a night before, recorded his 15th career shutout.
