NEW YORK (AP) - NHL owners and players were back at the bargaining table after a one-day break.
The sides met for about 90 minutes Sunday at the NHL office in Manhattan in an effort to end the lockout that is in its 57th day. There are no plans yet to meet again.
Talks took place for four straight days earlier this week before heated discussions ended the run Friday night. The decision to formally meet again came Sunday morning.
A few hours into Friday’s session, negotiations soured over the core economic differences that separate the sides and threaten the season completely.
The lockout already has caused the NHL to call off 327 regular-season games, including the New Year’s Day Winter Classic. A lockout wiped out the entire 2004-05 season.
