The NHL on Thursday added two more weeks of cancellations, erasing contests through Jan. 14 because the league and the players do not have a collective bargaining agreement.

Almost 51 percent of the season has been canceled, and the Flyers have had 41 games _ exactly half their schedule _ wiped out by the labor war.

Both sides still hope to play a 48-game season.

Stop laughing.
