Unexpected token ILLEGAL token error on line 7?

My code seems the same as in the tutorial and I am just not seeing where the error is.

app.js
const https = require("https");

const request = https.get("https://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", response => {
console.log(response.statusCode);
})

request.on('error', error => console.error(`Problem with request: ${error.message}`));

The template string seems to cause trouble with the challenge validation. But to satisfy the challenge, you won't need to return anything other than the error message itself.

Yes, that does work, thank you.
