NHL owners and players are back at the bargaining table after a one-day break.
Negotiations began Sunday afternoon at the NHL office in Manhattan. Talks took place for four straight days earlier this week before heated discussions ended the run Friday night.
The sides were in contact Saturday, leading to an informal lunch in the afternoon. The decision to formally meet again came Sunday morning.
A few hours into Friday's session, negotiations soured over the core economic differences that separate the sides and threaten the season completely.
The lockout is in its 57th day and has already caused the NHL to call off 327 regular-season games, including the New Year's Day Winter Classic. A lockout wiped out the entire 2004-05 season.

Waking up to dense fog today. Poor visibility slowing us down.
But at least it's mild. Temps are about 15-degrees above average today, despite the continued clouds & drizzle. High in the lower 60s.
Our next cold front comes through tomorrow, with rain, especially on Friday afternoon. With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. Stay tuned!
