Defenseman Keith Carney, out since Nov. 7 because of a broken bone in his right hand, probably will return to the lineup tonight against Columbus. "The X-rays looked clean," he said of a reexamination Wednesday. "I think as long as I wear some protection, like the soft cast I have used the past couple days, the risk should be low." The Ducks were 6-7-2-0 when Carney was injured and 3-10-2-2 in the 17 games since. TONIGHT vs. Columbus, 7:30, Fox Sports Net 2 Site--Arrowhead Pond.
