nhl- Talking Sunday

from the CP, The NHL and NHL Players' Association will continue talks Sunday as they move closer to completing a new collective bargaining agreement.
They met Saturday for the sixth straight day in New York and a deal could be announced as early as Monday.
The two sides have met 79 times overall - over nine consecutive weeks - since commissioner Gary Bettman cancelled the 2004-05 season Feb. 16.
Bettman has summoned the NHL's executive committee to New York for an update Monday, something he has done routinely during the lockout.
