ESPN doesn't do hockey very well but what comes out of the internet side is pretty decent. After a rocky show with Hockey Today, the show was relaunched with Emily Kaplin and Greg Wysynski and it's pretty good. it's no M vs W, but it's entertaining and I love the Phil Kessel loves Hot Dogs segment.
