St. Paul, MN (WDAY TV) -- It wasn't the ending that UND or it's fans were expecting; one and done at the Final Five in St. Paul.

It was an overtime goal that led to Colorado College knocking off UND, but Dave Hakstol and his players have to look back at several missed opportunities, including an oh for six mark on the power play. It cost them a shot at winning a fourth straight Broadmoor Trophy.

"I don't think we where clicking on all eight cylinders tonight and our timing was off tonight. Obviously when you go oh for six on the power play this time of the year it's tough to win games, special teams is so crucial. It was a rough night for the power play we just need to be better going into next week."

There where some missed opportunities, also there was some real good goal tending by Joe Howe and I think some good defensive plays by Colorado College, so a combination of a number of things.

"I've never felt like this before, obviously we won the last three and that was our goal coming into this year we wanted to four peat and what not. We took about 20 minutes off there between the second and third period and kind of just got put to sleep. Going into OT playing good teams this time of the year you can't leave a game up to just a bounce and that's what it was tonight."

It was UND's last game ever at the Final Five, but it won't end their season. The latest bracket projections have them as a two or a three seed in the National Tournament. That field gets released Sunday night.
