NHL cancels rest of the preseason
Though negotiations between the Players’ Association and NHL are set to resume Friday -- though it is not clear if the talks will be specifically geared toward ending the lockout -- the league on Thursday canceled the rest of its preseason schedule, including three Lightning games.
The league previously canceled preseason games through September.
Canceled Lightning games are against the Panthers Oct. 2 in Estero, Oct. 4 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum and Oct. 6 in Sunrise. The regular season is scheduled to begin Oct. 11.
