Hope for Lugano faded again after another goal by Kloten's Rintanen, but grew again after Christian Dubé put in the second goal for the Ticino team.

Kloten then made clear where the game was headed, scoring three more goals, with the help of Sven Lindemann, Adrian Wichser and Chris O'Sullivan.

Lugano lost their third consecutive match on Tuesday, after being defeated by Rapperswil 5-4 and the Zurich Lions 4-3.
