Tanner Kero gets his first NHL goal in Blackhawks loss

There weren’t many positives for the Blackhawks from their loss to the New Jersey Devils Friday night. The team seemed to pick up right where they left off against the Blues, allowing three goals in the first period.

However, it was a game that at least one of the Blackhawks will always remember. Rookie Tanner Kero tallied not only his first career point, but his first goal late in the third period.

Kero has only appeared in four games previous to Friday night’s. The 23-year-old Michigan native brought the Blackhawks to within two goals. However, it would not be enough. The Blackhawks would eventually lose 4-2, dropping their second in a row and fifth straight game on the road.

The lone other goal scored came from Patrick Kane in the second period.
