nhl- Talks Update

from the AP, Negotiators from the NHL and the players' association met until early Monday morning and planned to return to the bargaining table just hours later as they inched toward a deal that would end the lockout.
A source close to the talks told The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity that there was "still lots to do" and that discussions would likely stretch past Monday. The sides, which already met for seven straight days, were scheduled to resume negotiations in the later morning.
Talks wrapped up for the night at 1:30 a.m.
The NHL's executive committee is also scheduled to convene with commissioner Gary Bettman on Monday to get an update on the ongoing negotiations.
