After two consecutive defeats Davos fought back at Kloten’s home stadium to take the title from the Zurich team for the second time in three years.

The three winning goals came during three consecutive powerplays at 19, 21 and 21 minutes. The Kloten Flyers were weakened by the loss of their top scorer, the Finn Tommi Santala, who was injured at the end of the fifth play-off game.

Davos’ coach Arno del Curto said Tuesday evening’s victory was probably the sweetest so far as it had been so hard fought.
