NEW YORK (KTVI)- The NHL canceled a third week of games Friday, just one  day after the league turned down three counter-proposals from players.  That amounts to a total of 135 games through Nov. 1 have been canceled.

It is the third NHL lockout since 1994. The league says a full 82-game-per-team schedule could be played if the season begins by Nov. 2.  A deal would have to be reached with the players union by Thursday.

Talks are currently stalled between the two sides.
