NHL Players, Owners Meet for Second Straight Day With Sense of ‘Cautious Optimism’ Still in Air (Video)

NHL players and owners were back at the bargaining table for the second straight day in New York City on Wednesday, and both sides are making sure they don’t get too excited about a deal getting done.

Fans still have to wait on the edge of their seats for the lockout to end, but at least the news they are hearing now is positive.

Hear what Sportsnet’s John Shannon had to say to NESN’s Leah Hextall about Wednesday’s talks in the video above.
