For the first time since Oct. 18, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and players' association special counsel Steve Fehr agreed to return to the bargaining table at a secret location Saturday afternoon. The two have been talking by phone during the week and found enough common ground to meet face-to-face.
The lockout reached its 49th day Saturday, but at least there's a glimmer of optimism that the season can be saved. There have already been 327 games canceled - including the New Year's Day Winter Classic that was wiped out Friday - and the NHL has said it will be impossible to play a full season.
