Matt Duchene suffers knee injury

DENVER -- Colorado Avalanche center Matt Duchene left Saturday's 3-2 win over San Jose with a left knee injury and did not return.

He is scheduled to have an MRI on Sunday.

Duchene was hurt on the opening shift Saturday when he collided with teammate Jamie McGinn near the Sharks blue line. He fell to the ice and then gingerly skated to the bench.

Duchene has 23 goals and a team-leading 70 points in 70 games this season. He missed three games in November after sustaining an oblique injury against Florida.
