In a headline that's been frequently repeated during the two-month NHL lockout, the league is set to meet again with its players association Monday.
"We can confirm that we have tentatively agreed to get back together on Monday, either late in the afternoon or early evening," Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said. "The meeting was requested by the union, and it's their agenda. We will see what they have to tell us."
The sides haven't met since Nov. 11, breaking off what had until then been promising talks. Games are canceled through Nov. 30, and the Winter Classic Jan. 1 in Detroit is also canceled. The Buffalo Sabres have lost 23 percent of the 2012-13 season, the the league has said a full schedule is impossible at this point.
The lockout started Sept. 16.
