Avs' top scorer Tanguay out two to four weeks
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.
