Colorado wins ECHL title


The Colorado Eagles completed their time in the ECHL by capturing their second straight Kelly Cup.

A goal by Gabriel Verpaelst 17:31 into the third period at Estero, Florida, completed a comeback in the final period as the Eagles beat the Florida Everblades 3-2 in Game 7.

The Everblades squandered a 3-2 series lead to the Eagles, who ousted the Komets in overtime of Game 7 of the Western Conference finals and are leaving for the American Hockey League.

Verpaelst has missed five games of the conference finals for his fight with Dennis Kravchenko during the Game 2 warmups.
