NHL labor talks continued Wednesday as the two sides met off and on throughout the day for more than eight hours. The sides have now met for more than 16 hours in the last two days as they continue to work toward a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Negotiations will continue on Thursday, according to the NHL Players’ Association. The current work stoppage has already forced the cancellation of 422 regular season games, the Winter Classic and All-Star Weekend. The Wild were to have played at Phoenix last night in what would have been regular season game No. 25 for Minnesota.
