NEW YORK (AP) - After a long night of talks, the NHL and the union are to return to negotiations _ but not just yet.

The sides were supposed to meet at the league office Thursday at 10 a.m. EST. That, however, did not happen.

The Players Association said it was updating its members on negotiations and no time had been set for bargaining to resume.

Both sides understand the urgency to save a shortened season. They have moved closer to one another while swapping proposals, but key issues remain _ pensions and salary cap, among them.

The lockout is in its 110th day. Commissioner Gary Bettman has said that the league told the union a deal needs to be in place by next week so a 48-game season can begin Jan. 19.
