Blue Jackets

Center Steve Rucchin, sidelined since suffering a broken nose and a broken cheekbone Nov. 15, missed his ninth game and probably won't play tonight against the Columbus Blue Jackets. But he could be fit to play Friday against the Minnesota Wild, Coach Craig Hartsburg said. "He certainly looks a lot better on the ice," Hartsburg said. "He's 100% better than last week. He had surgery [Nov. 16] and didn't eat a lot. Obviously, his energy, conditioning and weight have dropped."

When James Cooper was a teenager in segregated Louisiana, he worked at a factory for $2 a day and didn't see a bright future. So he entered the military, attracted by such benefits as free lodging and meals, and eventually joined the ranks of one of the first African American regiments in the U.S. Army, becoming what was known as a Buffalo Soldier. "Why did I join the Army? Survival. At 17, I looked at the Army and it was better than what I had," Cooper, now 89, told a small audience Sunday at the Autry National Center of the American West, in one of many events commemorating the birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. A program in Culver City featured a panel discussion, poetry, choral and jazz music and a staged reading of a play called "The Dreamers" featuring Margaret Avery, an actress best known for her role in "The Color Purple.

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.
