NEWARK, N.J. - Jaromir Jagr scored 90 seconds into the game to become the eighth player in NHL history to reach 1,700 career points, Martin Brodeur got his 123rd career shutout, and the New Jersey Devils beat the Nashville Predators 5-0 Sunday night.

Brodeur stopped 15 shots to improve to 4-3-2 this season with his 673rd career victory.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
