Bruins players remaining in Boston are starting to run low on optimism, understandably, but theyre mustering up whatever theyve got left for todays big NHL powwow in New York City.
There arent exactly high hopes heading into Monday nights meeting between the NHL and NHLPA after things fell apart little more than a week ago, but at least theyre still talking to each other.
While the NHL and NHLPA continue to hammer things at the negotiating table in New York City, Bruins forwards Shawn Thornton and Milan Lucic have returned to Boston after taking part for two days.
There were no deals announced, and there werent even any statements to the media from either the NHL or the NHLPA once the meetings had concluded.
Its a big day in the CBA negotiations between the NHL and the NHLPA as both sides will meet at an undisclosed location in New York City.
