CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Fans will have to wait for the conclusion of Saturday night’s contest between the South Carolina Stingrays and the Savannah Ghost Pirates.

After the first period, the Stingrays tweeted that there was a delay because of an equipment malfunction.

Team spokesperson Cody Lefkowitz would later confirm that it was a Zamboni that malfunctioned. A Zamboni is a vehicle that smooths out ice.

After the delay, the team announced the game was postponed because of “ice conditions.”

“The final 40 minutes of the game will be played at a date to be determined,” the ECHL stated in a tweet.

The game was tied at 0-0 when it was suspended.

The Stingrays issued the following statement on their website:

The South Carolina Stingrays vs. Savannah Ghost Pirates game on Saturday, December 17th has been postponed following the first period of play at the North Charleston Coliseum due to a mechanical malfunction of the Zamboni. Once the rescheduled date has been determined, any tickets issued for the December 17th game will be valid for the new game date. If you cannot make the rescheduled game, the Stingrays will issue a credit for a future contest.
