For the second consecutive game, the Nashville Predators lost 5-0. Sunday night, Nashville was shut out by a struggling New Jersey Devils team. The reason Nashville was shutout comes from an unsuccessful power play, going zero-for-six all night.  Jaromir Jagr started off the scoring just 1:30 into the game. Jagr's goal put him up to 1,700 career points, being in the league of just eight players to ever do it. Also hitting a milestone was Travis Zajac. With the fourth goal of the night, Zajac scored his 100th career NHL goal. Also scoring goals for New Jersey was Cam Janssen, former-Pred Marek Zidlicky and Mattias Tedenby. Future hall-of-famer Martin Brodeur recorded a shutout, stopping a mere fifteen shots. Nashville was one of three teams, including Edmonton and San Jose, who Brodeur has not shutout before. After Sunday, the list has decreased to just two teams in the National Hockey League. Predators' goalie Carter Hutton may be the scapegoat by a lot of fans, but it really wasn't his fault for all five goals. The lack of awareness by the defense hasn't done Hutton any favors throughout this road trip. Hutton stopped eighteen on twenty-three shots. Five Thoughts/Notes - The lack of offense stems from the power play and how they set up. Instead of doing what the Preds do best -- working hard down low, then moving the puck to the point -- they forced a high turnout after entering the offensive zone, but because players like David Legwand and Gabriel Bourque do not have excellent stick-handling, the Devils would steal the puck and clear the zone. That is why Nashville finished the night a ridiculous 0-for-6.  - Offense can't come when there are only fifteen shots being put on Martin Brodeur.  - In Hutton's last six games, his goals against average is 4.78 with a save percentage of 0.841. - It may be time to split up Seth Jones and Shea Weber again. Tonight, both had a -2 rating and played 15:43 (Jones) and 15:32 (Weber).  - Patric Hornqvist had nearly a fourth of the Preds' shots on goal, with four. Standing in front of the net and taking hits do pay off offensively, but when no one else is willing to do the same, Hornqvist's hard-work goes unrewarded.
