Bye-bye, NHL

The NHL said there will be no bargaining with the players’ union Saturday, leaving nothing to stop a lockout. This will be the league’s fourth work stoppage since 1992, and this latest action adds to a landscape of labor unrest across American professional sports. The lockout will be the third to hit a major sports league in 18 months, following ones in the NFL and the NBA. Enlarge photo
