Players, owners set to chat again this afternoon after NHL board meeting

The second day of meetings between NHL players and owners will begin this afternoon because the sides spent the morning meeting internally.

The 24 negotiators who met for 7 1/2 hours Tuesday will gather again in New York after the NHL conducts its board of governors meeting, which was scheduled to start at 11 a.m. Sabres owner Terry Pegula, team President Ted Black and General Manager Darcy Regier were expected to attend.

The six owners and 18 players, including Buffalo's Ryan Miller, were originally planning to sit down prior to the board meeting. But Yahoo! Sports' Nick Cotsonika reports the players' asscociation "has something" for the owners and didn't want to rush through it. It's possible the NHLPA is readying a new proposal.

A collective bargaining agreement needs to be reached this week or more games will be canceled.
