NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL and the players association have started meetings for the second consecutive day in an attempt to end the ongoing lockout.
The sides were not expected to discuss the core economic issues that are at the root of the dispute that threatens the start of the regular season.
Some progress was made on Friday on secondary issues related to player safety and drug testing, areas that weren't expected to be contentious.
