LOUISVILLE, Ky. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Bronson-Kaufusi-Jersey/ . -- After two seasons of uncertainty about who his starting quarterback might be, Louisville coach Bobby Petrino begins his third year with the comfort of knowing Lamar Jackson is in charge entering fall camp.The Cardinals have other luxuries as practice opens Wednesday.Louisville returns 17 starters, including 10 on offense, from a squad that finished 8-2 with a bowl win after starting 0-3. While that momentum hasnt changed media preseason projections of Louisville finishing behind Clemson and Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conferences Atlantic Division, Petrino and players plan on taking aim at the top spot and beyond -- especially with depth and experience at many positions.I embrace the high expectations. Thats what we want, Petrino said Tuesday during a news conference. We want to be in a situation where people believe, players believe and I believe that weve got a chance to go compete to win a championship. ... Now its time to shut up and go work.Petrino praised his teams work ethic this summer that has resulted in a group returning faster and stronger than before. He was especially happy with the dedication and progress made by Jackson after a dynamic debut running and throwing the ball.Jackson rushed for a school freshman-record 960 yards, threw for 1,840 and combined for 23 touchdowns. He accounted for more than 450 yards from scrimmage alone in the Cardinals Music City Bowl win over Texas A&M, and Petrino said he has worked hard on improving in every facet.However, the coach wouldnt mind seeing more speed from Jackson and joked, When he tucks it, I want to see him run faster. I think he got caught from behind too many times.Jacksons return is significant for a team that entered the past two seasons somewhat unsettled behind center. Consider that Petrino sent Jackson and presumed starter Reggie Bonnafon out to begin last seasons opener against Auburn for a trick play that ended with Jackson throwing an interception after a botched snap.The sophomore has come a long way since then and said at last months ACC media day that hes been hitting the books hard trying to demonstrate his maturity. Jackson will have some experienced targets to throw to including Bonnafon, who relishes his new role as a slot receiver along with having continuity in the pocket.I wouldnt say things are too much different, but it just that weve finally got the guy, Bonnafon said. Now, everybody knows what they have to do and what we need to do and can focus on becoming experts at our positions.One priority is replacing standout defensive lineman Sheldon Rankins, who was selected 12th overall in the NFL draft by New Orleans. Louisville must also establish depth around senior DeAngelo Brown (career-high 40 tackles, 6.5 for loss with two sacks), the only returning starter up front.Brown said it will be different playing without Rankins but added, I feel like weve got great guys to step in for him.The linebacker corps returns Devonte Fields and Keith Kelsey but must replace Trevon Young, who will redshirt this season with a hip injury. Petrino also seeks new faces on special teams with the departures of reliable place kicker John Wallace and punter Josh Appleby.I look forward to the competition, Petrino said. I truly believe that the players set the depth (chart). ... I also believe that as a player, you need to show your teammates that youre the starter and the team knows who should be out there.Louisville opens Sept. 1 against Charlotte. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Nick-Boyle-Jersey/ . Ouellette, from Montreal, already has three Olympic gold medals since joining the team in 1999. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Patrick-Onwuasor-Jersey/ .C. at the helm of the top team in the Eastern Conference. His tenure as the GM in Vancouver was all too brief. Though he led the Canucks to what was then a franchise record-shattering campaign in just his second season, Nonis was gone and replaced one year later. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Customized/ . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Tampa Bay Lightning have won without Steven Stamkos before. Theyll now have to do so again.Tampa Bays superstar forward suffered a right knee injury in Tuesdays 4-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings, and the team announced on Wednesday that he is out indefinitely.Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos suffered a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee during the teams game against the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday night and will remain out of the lineup indefinitely, Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said in a statement released by the team. We are in the process of evaluating options for repair and rehabilitation and will release more information as it becomes available.Tampa Bays first game without Stamkos will come against Buffalo on Thursday (7 p.m. Eastern).Losing Stamkos for any length of time is obviously a significant blow for the Lightning (10-6-1). Through 17 games, Stamkos was third in the NHL in scoring with 20 points (nine goals, 11 assists).Our understanding is that this issue can be repaired and he can get back to full speed, Yzerman said, according to the Tampa Bay Times. It just takes some time. Obviously hes disappointed. Hes going to work his rear end off and hell be back as good as ever.The Lightning have had to persevere without their captain before. He played in only 37 games in 2013-14 due to a broken tibia and missed nearly all of the postseason last year after undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. The Lightning did well in his absencee last year, making it all the way to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals -- where Stamkos returned -- before falling to the Pittsburgh Penguins. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Alex-Collins-Jersey/. Tampa Bay will have to lean on young standout Nikita Kucherov in Stamkos absence. The 23-year-old is coming off a 30-goal season and was second in the league in points with 21 (eight goals, 13 assists) heading into Wednesdays action. He signed a new three-year, $14.3 million contract just before the start of the season.Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop has never lost in regulation in Buffalo, holding a record of 8-0-1 in nine games along with a .938 save percentage.This will be third game in a five-game road trip for the Lightning. Tampa Bay is in Columbus on Friday before facing Nashville on Monday.The Sabres (5-7-4) hope that a four-game homestand will start to turn things around. Buffalo has a five-game losing streak and is coming off a particularly dispiriting 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday.Offense has been an issue for the Sabres all season. Buffalo is last in the league in scoring and has just 10 goals in its past eight games.Weve got to keep pushing forward and weve got to keep finding ways to create the opportunities to get those goals, Sabres defenseman Josh Gorges said. We had some opportunities (against St. Louis), we created some chances but were not burying them. Weve got to keep digging.
