After being down 1-0 in the 13th minute of play by La Chaux-de-Fonds' Adam Hasani, it was Nico Dünner (15th), captain Stefan Tschannen (36th, PP) and Pascal Pelletier (60th, empty-netter) who netted the puck for SCL and led their team to the Swiss League Championship title tonight.

On their way to glory, SC Langenthal, who finished the regular season in fourth place, eliminated Swiss League's newbie EHC Kloten in the quarterfinals (4-1 series win) and managed to defeat EHC Olten in the semifinals in six games.

SCL's CEO Gian Kämpf recently confirmed to the Berner Zeitung that they are ready to play the League Qualification against Rapperswil or Davos. A potential promotion to Switzerland's highest league, however, seems out of question, since their arena - the "Schoren" - is not compliant with the requirements of the National League (read more here).
