PITTSBURGH (AP) -Petr Prucha 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.

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 five-game road trip.

Ed Jovanovski also scored on a power play for Phoenix, which is 2-0 with one game remaining on a season-opening road trip that began at Los Angeles. Last season, the Coyotes managed 30 points on the road, the fewest in the Western Conference, and won successive games away from home twice.

Radim Vrbata scored into an empty net with 54 seconds remaining - his third goal and fourth point in two games.
