The NHL and the players' association are talking again as the lockout reaches its 25th day.
The sides are meeting Wednesday in New York. On Friday, they held an unannounced meeting in Toronto to discuss where they were and how to move the process forward.
Officials on both sides were in contact Saturday and Sunday, leading to the meetings.
The NHL canceled the first two weeks of the regular season Thursday, wiping out 82 games from Oct. 11-24.
