Youthful infusion providing Phoenix Coyotes a late-season jolt

BOSTON — The arrival of minor-leaguers late in the season usually is a sign of a team primping prospects for the future amid a non-playoff fate — except, apparently, in the Coyotes’ case, because they’ve welcomed in a contingent from the American Hockey League while still very much in postseason contention.
“We think they give us a chance to win,” coach Dave Tippett said. “That’s the bottom line. We’re not seeing how young guys respond or this or that. We’re trying to win, and that’s the bottom line. If you’re in a situation where you’re out of the playoffs, maybe you’re looking at young guys. But that’s not our case at all.
