NHL Owners and Players Agree On New Contract

This time it looks for real.  After bargaining for months, the NHL and its players’ union finally came to an agreement in principle on a new 10-year deal that would end the owners’ lockout and allow at least a 48-game season and the Stanley Cup playoffs.

After a 16-hour bargaining session that began on Saturday the two sides finally reached an agreement around 5 AM on Sunday.  That agreement still needs to be ratified by all the players and owners.

A similar dispute cancelled the entire 2004-05 hockey season.

The Buffalo Sabres have already lost 38 games during the 2012-13 season including 20 home games.  The Sabres were to have hosted the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.
