NEW YORK (AP) -- NHL owners and players face lots of work to save the hockey season. Whether they are moving closer after a week of talking remains to be seen.
The league and the players' association met Friday for the fourth straight day and fifth time in seven days, trying to reach an agreement to end the lockout. A union spokesman said there will be multiple meetings during the day to discuss collective bargaining matters.
The sides got an earlier start Friday than in previous days, perhaps recognizing the urgency on the 55th day of the lockout. The league has already called off 327 regular-season games, including the New Year's Day Winter Classic in Michigan, and said a full season won't be played.
If there is no deal soon, the NHL could lose a full season to a lockout for the second time in seven years.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and players' association executive director Donald Fehr spoke publicly Thursday night after talks ended. Neither provided details o...

A fourth straight day of NHL labor talks failed to bring the league and its locked-out players any closer to a deal that would put hockey back on the ice and save the season.
In fact, the gap between the fighting factions might have gotten even wider on a failed Friday.
After three consecutive seemingly positive days of talks this week, discussions turned a bit sour when negotiations...
Lockout Update: Four days of consecutive talks, WOW!! Is a brink coming or has the National Hockey league given up on all the lost revenue. The NHL is finally letting the players speak. Gary Bettman has led the NHL to three lockouts in18 years. Is it all entirely Mr. Bettmans fault? What’s more soothing then
from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
Neither NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman nor NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr has distinguished himself thus far in terms of charting a course to a successful resolution to the current lockout of the NHL’s players.
Strategies on both sides have been at best curious and at worst deeply flawed.
The best that can be said about the ongoing NHL labor negotiations is that they are still going, and will continue for at least a fourth straight day.
The league and the locked-out players' association got back together Thursday and accomplished enough over five-plus hours to make plans to meet again Friday.
''I am not going to discuss the negotiations or the substance...

If you've never been to an NHL game, you're missing out on a good time.
It's fun. Hell, it's real fun.
Watching on TV is OK. The big games and the playoffs are always good, but something about being in an NHL rink on a Saturday night is electric.
And thanks to the boneheads that run the NHL, this is the second time in 5 years that the...
So if you can't find it in your heart to bring back the game for the sake of the millions worldwide who will throw money into your coffers, consider doing it for the real fans. The ones who remember that Tim Horton was more than a donut shop or the ones who actually saw Gordie Howe get a Godrie Howe hat trick.
These are the fans who have brought your game to the next generation...
