Brian Engblom Confused as to Where Hockey Game Was Being Played

Just as we were thinking about how good it was of VERSUS to keep Hockey Central on the air until 1:30 AM last night and show every important highlight, this comes to us from Alan Pergament of the Buffalo News’ Talkin TV Blog:

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.

As we’ve said before, we’re no fans of the guys at Hockey Central, so we did not see any of this.  But it’s still ridiculous that, on a night where the VERSUS game was one of only two being played in that timeslot, that Brian Engblom can completely forget where the game is being played.  VERSUS should really consider some changes to it’s studio show in the offseason.

  1. I was seriously listening to this going “what the f**k is this guys talking about?” They need to get him those little laminated card they give preschoolers to put around their necks so they know what bus they are suppose to get on… “Mkay Brian… today we are in Buffalo. See the Buff-a-lo picture?”

    Do you have any idea what they plan to do as far as commentators when the playoffs start? It looks like Dave Strader is the only regular they’re going to have available.

    I heard him say this…and I thought “Man, this guy is a dope”

    Wow… did anyone actually read the quote? Maybe none of you speak Engrish? It says

    ‘“The Detroit Red Wings can overwhelm in your own building,” said Engblom.’

    Your own building.

    Which would mean not in their building. Which means he knew the game was not in Detroit.
