The NHL and its Players' Association met for over seven hours on Tuesday at an undisclosed location in New York about their ongoing labor issues. Neither side made any public comments about the progress of the meetings but multiple media outlets are reporting that more sessions are on tap for today. Representatives had previously referred to Tuesday's talks as "make-or-break" type negotiations.
The current labor dispute has already cost the league a chance at a full 82-game season as games have been cancelled through the end of November. The league last Friday also cancelled Winter Classic that was scheduled for January First at Michigan Stadium between the Red Wings and the Maple Leafs
