A Zamboni driver's worst nightmare is getting on the ice before or during the intermission for a game and making a few passes, only to have the big machine break down in the middle of the ice. That's exactly what happened at Harvard Friday night ahead of a big ECAC conference game between the Crimson and Dartmouth.

Dartmouth's men's hockey SID, Pat Salvas, who runs the team's colorful Twitter account documented the whole ordeal, rather comically, I might add.

When the staff couldn't move the vehicle from the ice, the Crimson had to come out and help push, as you can see in the picture above. Not exactly the type of thing most coaches want their players doing before a big game.

Among those pushing the Zamboni is Nashville Predators prospect Jimmy Vesey, the team's leading scorer.

The Zamboni lived to fight another day, thankfully.

The game was delayed nearly two hours, but apparently the ol' Zamboni breaking down strategy paid off. Harvard won 3-0.
