With the help of federal mediators, the NHL and the players' association got back to bargaining Wednesday after a week apart.

The location was secret, and so was what was discussed. The talks went well enough that the sides will be back at the negotiating table Thursday.

"No comments," was all NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly would say Wednesday night in an email to The Associated Press.

This marked the first meeting between the sides since a get-together that lasted just over two hours last week in New York after the locked-out players' association made a new comprehensive proposal that was quickly rejected by the NHL. The sides agreed on Monday to use the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service.

The lockout, which reached its 74th day Wednesday, has already forced the cancellation of all games through Dec. 14, the New Year's Day Winter Classic, and All-Star Weekend that was slated for Columbus, Ohio, in January.
