For the first time in club history the Miskolc have won the MOL League title in a four game sweep of HC Nové Zámky with game four being a dramatic come from behind overtime thriller.

 
 
 
 

Going into game four Miskolc had the momentum after they scored a late goal in game three to be up 3-0 with a chance to clinch the title on home ice, in front of an overflowing crowd. Game four was a true battle as both teams were fight for each puck and not willing to give an inch to the other. At first it looked as if the age and wisdom of Nové Zámky, who dressed four players over the age of 40 would get the better of Miskolc. As as it looked that Miskolc would be able to kill the first powerplay of the game the veteran Marek Uram pulled trick out of his bag and flipped the puck off of goalie Bence Bálizs’ back from behind the end line, a truly veteran move. Miskolc worked out scoring chances but Pavel Krajcovic stood tall in the Nové Zámky net.

At the start of the second period Marek Uram was on his toes again, sixtyfive seconds into the second period Uram put the defending champions up 2-0 buried the puck past Bálizs, who was voted as the top goalie by the coaches. Three minutes later Albin Podstavek took a mid range shot that got past Bálizs, the goal took some air out of the fans who up until then had been screaming their heads off. Péter Klobucnik made it 4-0, at this point people were looking around saying that now they know what they will be doing Monday night that is when game 5 was scheduled for. In the closing minutes Miskolc had 5 on 3 powerplay and they knew that they had to score if they wanted to get back into the game. MOL League defenseman of the year Jesse Dudas fired a rocket past Krajcovic end his shutout, but the team still had a lot of work left.
