Mensagem: 

According to my Longman Pocket Idioms Dictionary, the definitions of the such expressions are:

 

(just) in the nick of time: just before it's too late, or just before something bad hapens:

The money arrived in the nick of the time, so we could pay everyone before Christmas.

 

At the elenventh hour: the latest possible time you can do something:

New evidence was uncovered at the elenventh hour.

 

Deivis.
