NHL, union back to bargaining for 2nd straight day
NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL and its players' union kept talking Wednesday, a day after they met for more than seven hours in an effort to end the nearly two-month-old hockey lockout.
The sides negotiated on a new collective bargaining agreement past 10 p.m. Tuesday and immediately announced they would reconvene. They started up again at an undisclosed location, and were fully prepared to talk well into the night.
As the lockout reached its 53rd day, it was expected that owners and players would further discuss the "make-whole" provision, which involves the payment of player contracts that are already in effect.
