NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL and the union's main negotiating teams met for 30 minutes before ending talks for the evening.
The league made a counter offer to the players' proposal, and the union will review it. The sides likely will meet again on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, small groups from each side met and conferred by conference calls all afternoon about provisions of a potential collective bargaining agreement. The two negotiating teams began meeting at 9 p.m. EST and soon after ended their talks for the night.
On Monday, the players' association presented a counterproposal to an offer made by the league late last week. The NHL spent Monday night reviewing the document.
