- Nov 1 - Tabaracci pulled a groin muscle in the third period of his shutout with Calgary and is out for at least a week.
- September 24 - Article from the post on Tabby's return, Tabby feels right at home...
- September 16 - New mask info!! - In the words of my "source" - "Couldn't see the very top but along the front above the cage is the Capitol dome done in what looks like a glitter white. On the sides are the head of a bald eagle facing out with mouth
open. Tabby in script on the chin in white. Overall blue background. Number 31 on back with gold stars above."
A big thanks to MM for her report - and photos to come!
- Sept 14 - Early reports of training camp say Tabaracci is playing well, though there's room for improvement. As expected, Caps playoff goalie Olaf Kolzig is stealing the show - goaltending wise.
- Aug - Rick Tabaracci was traded back to the Washington Capitals for future considerations (or as some see it - Phil Housley, who was picked up on waivers earlier in the month). He will serve as back-up to longtime buddy Olaf Kolzig.
