In an interview on the Hockey Night in Canada show on Sirius Radio, Daly said the NHL and NHL Players Association need to agree on some smaller issues to move forward on how to divide revenues, the big sticking point between the sides.

Daly said the meetings will be "an effort to follow up on some of the issues we were (discussing) about a week ago. And get as many of these side issues in the can as possible, because ultimately, knock on wood, we're going to reach an agreement and hopefully we're going to be moving very, very quickly to get the players back on the ice."

All regular-season games through Oct. 24 have been canceled.

HASEK GIVES UP ON RETURN: Veteran goaltender Dominik Hasek appears to have given up hope of returning to the NHL again. Hasek, 47, resumed training ahead of this season hoping to get picked up by an NHL club, but told Czech daily Sport that it is "very unlikely" he would play again after no team offered him a contract amid the lockout. Known as the "Dominator," Hasek was named most valuable player twice and won the Vezina Trophy six times.

ZETTERBERG TO SWITZERLAND: Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg will play for Swiss club EV Zug during the lockout.

BACK TO SCHOOL: Blue Jackets forward R.J. Umberger is returning to his alma mater, and staying in Columbus, to help coach the Ohio State men's team during the lockout.

LONGTIME VOICE DIES: Budd Lynch, a veteran radio broadcaster who spent more than 60 years working for the Red Wings and became the team's public voice, died Tuesday. He was 95. Mr. Lynch, the club's public address announcer, died after a brief illness at a Detroit-area rehabilitation center, the team said. Mr. Lynch was the longest-tenured employee in team history, with 63 years of service.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
