After two consecutive losses in the away match Leksand is back on the winning course.
The Dalal team scored important points and climbed the line against the comic strip Karlskoga after 5-1.
The gain was also a trend break after three losses against Värmlandslag earlier in the season.
There he gets three consecutive victories under the new coach Roger Melin before Leksand lost again.
But the losses against Tingsryd and Västerås were bets on bortais. At home in Tegera Arena on Saturday, Leksand is right.
However, it took until the third period before it completely ended against the top team Karlskoga.
Linus Persson (09.39) and Mattias Karlsson (25.58) brought the home team to the 2-0 management, each with a goal in the first and second period.
Karlskoga, who has a total of ten points to AIK in the hockey league, had his chances but Jonas Arntzen played in the Leksand goal.
In the last period Leksand increased the tempo and took over the game more and more for 4,575 spectators.
Oskar Lang made 3-0 (42.39), Karlskoga got hope via Carl Berglund's reduction (46.36), but then Mattias Karlsson closed the game with his second goal for the evening with 4-1 (48.04) before David Rundqvist set the final numbers to 5-1 (53.52).
A much needed victory for Leksand who climbed to the playground as the eighth in the table.

In Umeå the last white horse destroyed a 2-0 victory against Björklöven. Norrköpinglaget, however, remains the last in the table, with 12 points upwards to prevent degradation.
