nhl- CBA meeting Tomorrow

via Canadian Press, After three marathon sessions last week in Toronto, the NHL and NHLPA are scheduled to meet Tuesday in New York.
Two two sides met for nearly 14 hours at a Toronto hotel on Friday after a pair of ten-hour sessions on Wednesday and Thursday.
The feeling in both camps after the meetings is that a deal appears possible in the next month or so although talks could still hit a snag.
"We continued our discussions on financial and accounting issues, and while we are making progress, we still have a lot of work to do," said NHL executive vice-president Bill Daly. "The parties have agreed to continue the process with a series of meetings next week, at which time we hope to begin discussing a myriad of other CBA issues."
While progress has been slow but steady, the two sides continue to plug away at it. Tuesday's meeting will be the 20th session since the season was cancelled Feb. 16.
