Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- It's a different feeling in Grand Forks, as UND players head into the offseason that includes 6 seniors that have played their final game in a North Dakota sweater.

The final 8 minutes changed everything for UND in it's region final loss to Yale. A 1-0 lead turned into a 4-1 defeat. Changes are ahead, UND has to replace a pair of hobey baker finalists, and prepare for a new conference.

But, for now, this one stings.

Coach Dave Hakstol says, "It's difficult to walk into a press conference a few minutes after the season ends and have a clear perspective."

Dillon Simpson, UND Jr. Defensemen, says, "A lot of the guys in that lockerroom care a lot about this program and a lot about winning games. And it's unfortunate that we didn't get the win. Guys kept believing and kept pushing."
