The NHL eliminated 16 more days from the regular-season schedule Monday, Dec. 10, 2012, and if a deal with the players' association isn't reached soon the whole season could be lost. The league wiped out all games through Dec. 30 in its latest round of cancellations. Negotiations between the league and the players' association broke off last week, but NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Sunday the sides are trying to restart talks this week.

Nigeria_Cricket_Grat

In this photo taken Friday, Nov. 30, 2012, a bowler in action, from Ogun state, during a match against Lagos state, during the 18th National sports festival in Lagos, Nigeria. Near the parade ground that Queen Elizabeth II once toured when this nation still was under British rule, the sharp crack of a ball against a bat marks the rebirth of a colonial sport now finding a second life. Cricket, once the preserve of Nigerias educated elite, is finding favor in schools for poor children and in the streets of some of the nations most violence-torn cities. Yet cricket has a long history in the country. British colonialists introduced the game to boarders in Nigerias top secondary schools in the 19th century. Nigeria played its first recorded international game in 1904 against present-day Ghana, local cricket officials say. (AP Photo/Sunday Alamba)
