Pens wait until last seconds to defeat Coyotes

(TSX / STATS) -- GLENDALE, Ariz.-- Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan knows what a championship-caliber team looks like and, the last week or so, his Penguins didn't fit that vision. They were taking on the appearance of any other team, and Sullivan didn't like that look at all.

On an unlikely night -- one in which they nearly gave away a game to the NHL's worst-record team -- the Penguins finally resembled the team that won the last two Stanley Cups.

Olli Maatta's slap shot goal from the left point with 14.5 seconds remaining ended Arizona's comeback, and the Penguins gave up a two-goal lead but still rallied to beat the last-place Coyotes 4-2 on Saturday night.
