NEW YORK (AP) -- The NHL and the players' association have resumed meetings to try to end the month long lockout.

Representatives of the NHL Players' Association arrived Thursday morning at league headquarters, where the sides met for about five hours Wednesday in an effort to work out a deal.

Although it has been a week since the NHL called off the first two weeks of the regular season, that sting will be felt full force Thursday when what should have been opening day passes without a puck hitting the ice.

The sides met twice Wednesday. If talks go well Thursday, or if the scheduled work can't be completed, there could be another day of discussions Friday.
