Meet­ings to re­sume to­day in New York

Austin American-Statesman - - C SPORTS -

A piv­otal week is un­der way in the NHL lock­out, with the sides still in stalled ne­go­ti­a­tions for a new col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing agree­ment and the 201213 sea­son in dan­ger of can­cel­la­tion. The league and the play­ers union will try a new tack in the next own­ers-play­ers meet­ing, sched­uled for to­day in New York. A dif­fer­ent set of own­ers will rep­re­sent the NHL; and Gary Bettman, the league’s com­mis­sioner, and Don­ald Fehr, the union’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, will be ab­sent. More games are ex­pected to be can­celed Thurs­day or Fri­day, adding to the 34 per­cent of the sea­son wiped out by the lock­out.
