PITTSBURGH (AP) Down two goals - and even worse, down two defensemen - after two periods on Thursday night against San Jose, Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan offered his players a much-needed reminder.

"You can win ugly in this league," Sullivan told them.

The Stanley Cup champions responded with 20 minutes of grit against an opponent only too familiar with how deep the Penguins can dig when the moment requires.
