Confident Tanguay keeps rolling
Alex Tanguay was the least heralded member of Colorado's much-hyped top two lines entering the season, but after 20 games the 24-year-old left winger leads his better-known teammates and all but one other NHL player in scoring this season.

Tanguay is tied with Atlanta's Ilya Kovalchuk with 27 points entering play Monday.
