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

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
