THE DEUCE TO LAUNCH "NHL 2NIGHT"

     ESPN2 will launch "NHL 2Night", a 30-minute hockey broadcast
that will run five nights a week at 11:30pm.   The show will
appear every night except Sunday and Monday, or when ESPN2 is
showing a live event.  ESPN Managing Editor Bob Eaton said the
show will be modeled off "Baseball Tonight":  "I think we will be
heavier on the highlights but we'll certainly do issue stories.
... We've made a network that has tried to cater to the hockey
audience.  This is the next logical step" (Joe Lapointe, N.Y.
TIMES, 1/31).
