PITTSBURGH — Petr Prucha was knocked off his skates in front of the net but still pushed the puck into the net while sitting on a Penguins player's back in the second period, and the Phoenix Coyotes took advantage of nine power plays to beat Pittsburgh, 3-0, on Wednesday night.

Coyotes goalie Ilya Bryzgalov made 24 saves, only a handful of them difficult, as the Penguins played a flat, error-filled and uninspired game before leaving on a difficult five-game trip that begins tonight in Philadelphia.
