We’re not going to weigh in on this until we get more information, so for now, here’s a report from Steve Burton of CBS Boston:

Sources tell WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton that an unannounced meeting was held Monday with a high-ranking official from each side, and significant progress was made toward salvaging the hockey season. It’s possible an announcement could come as soon as tomorrow or Wednesday.

Burton spoke with Bruins forward Milan Lucic at Joe Andruzzi’s foundation dinner, and he’s very excited about the possibility of getting back to work.

“You know if your sources are correct obviously it’s great news,” says Lucic. “It’s great for the fans I think especially. I know they’ve been probably going through the most heartache than anyone.”

Updates to come.


UPDATE: Backhand Shelf still can’t confirm this, or come up with anything close to it. Take with a grain – or possibly shaker – of salt.

UPDATE TWO: Here’s the video, first seen on Puck Daddy:

UPDATE THREE: Yeah, everything we were hoping was true pretty clearly isn’t.
