When Washington Capitals goalie Rick Tabaracci stretched out his left leg to block a shot during an afternoon scrimmage yesterday, his right leg folded under him and he felt something in his knee "pop."
The Capitals' lineup for tonight's first preseason game:
Olaf Kolzig, Byron Dafoe
* Brendan Witt-Kevin Hatcher
Jason Woolley-Sylvain Cote
Enrico Ciccone-Shawn Anderson
-! (Left wing-center-right wing)
Craig Berube-Keith Acton-Randy Pearce;
Steve Konowalchuck-Mike Ridley-Jason Allison;
Randy Burridge-Michael Boback-Keith Jones;
Todd Krygier-Martin Jiranek-Kerry Clark*
*-Clark strained his knee yesterday during practice. A decision on who will fill his spot was to be made this morning.
