Storm Grabs Brabham Cup On Final Day

The Brabham Cup, awarded to the regular season points champion each year in the East Coast Hockey League, was determined on the final day of the season when Toledo won 4-3 at Wheeling and Peoria lost 4-3 in a shootout at home against Dayton. Toledo finishes atop the Northwest Division with 104 points, one point ahead of Peoria, and guarantees itself home-ice advantage throughout the 2003 Kelly Cup Playoffs. It is the second time the Storm has won the Brabham Cup, the first coming in 1991-92, the first year Toledo played as a member of the ECHL.
