Earth to Engblom

We're used to studio analysts saying things about sports that boggle the mind.

But Brian Engblom's analysis of the Buffalo Sabres play after the first period of their 4-1 loss to Detroit was a real head-scratcher on Versus.

He seemed to think the game was being played in Detroit, rather than in HSBC Arena. 

"The Detroit Red Wings can overwhelm in your own building," said Engblom.

 Oh, well, anyone can make one mistake.

But he also said "going into Detroit (the Sabres) are off to a pretty good start."

Amazingly, Engblom's partners in the studio didn't correct him.

Oh, well, we all know where the Sabres are now after the loss? In deep, deep trouble.

If you watched Monday's game on Versus, what did you think of Engblom and the other so-called "experts."
