Obama urges resolution to NHL lockout

Obama said owners and players "can figure out how to spread out a bunch of revenue" and get back to playing games.

Owners are demanding that players take a smaller percentage of revenue and want new restrictions on free agency and contract length. The lockout is the sport's third in the past decade, and if the season is canceled, it would be the second time hockey lost a full slate of games in less than 10 years.
