NEW YORK (CBSDC/AP) — For the first time in eight days, the NHL and the players’ association are heading back to the bargaining table to try again to reach a deal that will end the two-month old lockout.

Talks will resume on Monday, the 65th day of the lockout that has already wiped out 327 games and threatens the entire season if a settlement isn’t reached soon.

After turning down a suggestion from NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman to take a two-week break from negotiations, the union requested another meeting with the league that was scheduled Saturday. It will be the first bargaining session between the sides since Nov. 11, when a busy week of negotiating wrapped up with a session that lasted just over an over and didn’t produce any results.

All games through Nov. 30 and the New Year’s Day Winter Classic have been called off. Another round of cancellations is expected this week if a new deal isn’t reached.

While the District is dormant of NHL action, the Hershey Bears, the Washington Capitals’ AHL minor league franchise, will skate against the Norfolk Admirals at the Verizon Center on Dec. 6.
