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

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
