DENVER -- Colorado Avalanche forward Alex Tanguay left the ice in the second period Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens with a knee injury and did not return.

He will have an MRI on the knee Sunday or Monday, coach Patrick Roy said.

Tanguay was injured on a hard hit into the boards at Pepsi Center.

Tanguay had nine points (three goals) in 12 games this year, tying him for third on the team. He was plus-8 entering the game against Montreal.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
