Peter Harrold scored a goal in New Jersey's 3-1 loss to Chicago on Friday night.
Harrold opened the scoring at the 15:30 mark of the first period and that score held until the third period. The Blackhawks opened up the machine in the final frame and scored three unanswered goals to defeat the Devils. This was only Harold's second goal of the year and his first since November 28th. The 31-year-old has three points in 26 games this season. He obviously has no value in standard fantasy leagues. Feb 13 - 11:06 PM
