Avs' top scorer Tanguay out two to four weeks

DENVER -- Alex Tanguay, the leading scorer for the
Colorado Avalanche, will be out two to four weeks with a right knee sprain.

The team said Tuesday that tests revealed no further damage to
the knee. Tanguay was hurt during the first period of Sunday's loss
at San Jose.

He leads the Avalanche with 74 points, including 26 goals.

The Avalanche have already lost three other players for the
season: Steve Konowalchuk (wrist), Ossi Vaananen (leg) and
Marek Svatos (shoulder), who was among the top rookies in goals and
points when he went down earlier this month.

Colorado's next game is Wednesday at Anaheim.
