NEW YORK (AP) - NHL owners and players are back at the bargaining table for the second straight day.
The sides are talking at an undisclosed location, looking for a way to end the nearly two-month-old lockout.
The NHL and its players' association met for more than seven hours Tuesday in New York. Wednesday marked the 53rd day of the lockout. The sides are expected to discuss the ``make-whole'' provision, which involves the payment of player contracts that are already in effect.
A day after NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr spoke to reporters before talking to the NHL, neither side made any pre-meeting comments.
The sides are negotiating for the third time in five days, including a weekend session between NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and union special counsel Steve Fehr. Before that there had been no face-to-face discussions since Oct. 18.
