Erik Cole out with leg fracture

Winger Erik Cole of the Carolina Hurricanes fractured a bone in his lower left leg last night after receiving a nasty hip check from Boston's Dennis Wideman. Cole is expected to be out of action for four to six weeks.

Canes coach Paul Maurice says Tim Conboy will be in the lineup for Carolina's next game on Tuesday night. Don't be surprised if a player from Albany is soon recalled for extra backup.
