Avalanche's Tanguay out minimum two weeks
Colorado Avalanche forward Alex Tanguay will miss at least two weeks with a knee injury

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- Colorado Avalanche right wing Alex Tanguay will be sidelined for "a minimum of two weeks" because of the knee injury he sustained Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens, Avs coach Patrick Roy said Monday.

Tanguay was hurt in the second period of the Avalanche's 4-1 win. Roy said Tanguay would be re-evaluated by team physician Dr. Andrew Parker after the two-week period.

Rookie center Nathan MacKinnon will replace Tanguay on the line with left wing Gabriel Landeskog and center Paul Stastny when the Avalanche play the Nashville Predators on Wednesday at Pepsi Center. MacKinnon moved to that line Saturday after Tanguay was injured and scored a third-period goal to break a 1-1 tie.

Tanguay has three goals and six assists in 13 games.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
