OGDEN -- It was the Moose who got the better of the Mustangs as Ogden hosted Park City at the first in-state match of Western States Hockey League teams on Friday.
Park City scored a pair of powerplay goals during an intense game and handed Ogden another heartbreaking 5-4 shootout loss at the Weber County Ice Sheet.
"In the end what killed us was our penalty kills," Pfleegor said. "It takes the momentum out of the game for us and I think it's where we lost focus."
Park City's Devan Beck and Zack Jewby scored early goals before Ogden points leader Kody Rodriguez retaliated with 12 minutes left in the first period packing away his 13th goal of the season on a solo effort that got past Park City goalie Alex Burdekin.
Burdekin stopped 38-of-42 shots as Ogden goalie Aleksi Kiviranta saved 37-of-42 shots in the shoot-out loss.
Ogden forward Lukas Moudry's logged a goal in regulation, a shootout score and an assist in his first appearance after being taken off the ice on a backboard during last Friday's match with the Idaho Junior Steelheads.
"It was scary," the Czech Republic native said of his injury. "I was laying and I couldn't move my neck and I thought 'this is not good.'"
Moudry said his neck feels much better and he's excited to be back on the ice. Now if his team could just pick up another win.
"Nobody likes to lose," he said.
Rodriguez' logged another score during the opening moments of the second period that gave Ogden a 4-2 lead that quickly dissipated as Park City's outside shooting came alive as goals from Jordan Matthys and Dan Jenkins (powerplay) tied things at four that held through regulation and overtime.
Ogden (3-18-3) will pack their bags for a nine-game road trip that carries them through Jan. 27 when they're back in town for a three-game series with the Dallas Snipers.
