George Kontos returns home to shoot the puck for the Blackhawks

Some homecoming videos start off really great, but in the end, don't turn out so well:

The home team put together a pretty cool tribute video from the night -- ending with Kontos putting one into the net. The Hawks also won the game, 4-1.

What can we say? Kontos is used to performing well in front of big crowds
