What is the difference between a hepatic vein and a hepatic portal vein?

Hepatic portal vein carries blood and nutrients from the stomach, spleen, intestines and gall bladder to the liver.
The hepatic vein carries deoxygenated blood from the liver back to the right atrium of the heart via the inferior vena cava.
