Sheffield Steelers retained their Elite League title last night after Mathieu Roy’s double helped secure a 3-1 victory at Fife Flyers.
The Kirkcaldy club could not prevent coach Paul Thompson’s men claiming the Elite League title.
Tyler Mosienko netted the game-opener short-handed after 12 minutes and Russ Moyer made it 2-0 just over a minute later.
Shayne Stockton pulled one back for the home side on 35 minutes after being set up by Ryan Dingle and Michael Dorr.
But Steelers made sure when Mathieu Roy scored after 44 minutes allowing the men from the House of Steel to claim the league title for the second year running.
Cardiff Devils finish the season in second place but claimed the Erhardt Conference title after a 4-3 victory over Nottingham Panthers.
Third-placed Braehead Clan beat Edinburgh Capitals 6-3 while Coventry Blaze were comfortable 6-2 winners over Manchester Storm.
Meanwhile, Dundee Stars completed their regular season schedule on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over Coventry Blaze, the Scottish club’s first victory over the Midlands side this term.
The points ensured that Stars finish seventh in the Elite League.
Marc Lefebvre, Stars’ coach, had demanded a solid performance to set the side up for the play-offs.
And the squad delivered with a third straight league win but Stars only claimed one goal from six power play opportunities and that will concern the coach.
Lou Dickenson claimed the game-winner less than three minutes from time after Justin Faryna had opened the scoring on the power play after 16 minutes.
Former Braehead Clan star James Jorgensen levelled after 53 minutes to set up a tense finish but Gray and Doug Clarkson assisted on Dickenson’s winner as Stars finished with 55 points from 52 games.
Fife Flyers were beaten 5-1 in Belfast on Saturday and the Northern Irish side’s win was built on a three-goal salvo in seven nightmare minutes.
The Kirkcaldy club were punished for indiscipline with three of the home side’s goals coming from power plays.
Mike Radja opened the scoring after 14 minutes and Jim Vandermeer slotted the second only 25 seconds from the first break.
Radja collected his second after 49 seconds of the middle session but Shayne Stockton pulled one back nine minutes later on the power play.
That was to prove Fife’s only joy of the night as Kris Beech made it 4-1 after 32 minutes and Glasgow-born Colin Shields was set-up by another Scot, Mark Garside, for the final goal less than three minutes from time.
Dundee Tigers have a mountain to climb in the second-leg of the Scottish National League play-offs.
They lost 7-0 to Paisley Pirates in the first-leg at Dundee Ice Arena last night after period scores of 3-0, 2-0 and 2-0.
Ian Carstairs, Tigers’ former player-coach, said: “It is obviously a disappointing result for us and not the sort of performance we want to put on for home fans.”
