Windham Jaguars Boys Ice Hockey '18-'19

Roux, Salem take rivalry win

SALEM — Anthony Survilas had a firm message for his linemates as he skated onto the ice for a crucial 5-on-3 power play.
“I looked at Ryan Pappalardo and said, ‘We’re going to get a goal right here,’” said Survilas. “I said we were going to celebrate with our fans.”
Survilas made good on his prediction, firing home a slap shot for the go-ahead goal with 7:04 left in regulation, snapping more than 36 minutes of scoreless hockey.
Salem added another less than a minute later, and goalie Brady Roux closed out a masterful performance as Salem beat rival Windham 2-0 on Saturday in front of an estimated senior night crowd of 1,000 fans.
The matchup was a battle for bragging rights for the teams that both call the Salem ICenter home. The Jaguars (11-9-1, 8-9-1 Div. 1) had beaten the Blue Devils (9-10-1, 8-9-1 Div. 1) in their previous matchup.
 “What an amazing game,” said Roux, who earned his first high school shutout. “We knew it was going to be a close game between two good teams. We knew the atmosphere was going to be incredible. I just tried to stop every puck that I could, and I knew my team was going to come through for me in the end. It was a huge win.”
For the most of the day, Roux (27 saves) was matched up in a goalie duel with Windham’s Andoni Tsoukalas (29 saves), with each delivering highlight-reel saves.
Tsoukalas kept Salem off the scoreboard for two and a half periods with tremendous play, including twice stopping breakaways and knocking away a shot from point-blank with his mask late in the second.
Roux was able to match him, however. Two of his best were when he went into a full split to kick a shot away, and when he stopped a breakaway with a butterfly save, then fell backwards to grab the rebound.
“I was tracking shots well,” said Roux. “I was reading shots off their sticks and reacting to make the saves. I felt good, and I knew (a Salem goal) was going to happen. The guys were grinding so hard.”
That goal came midway through the third, with Salem on a two-man advantage.
“I got a pass, saw (Austin) Salvetti in front of the net and saw an opening in the right corner,” said Survilas. “I took a shot and didn’t know if Salvetti was going to tip it in. Then I was the puck find the opening and I was celebrating with the fans.”
The Blue Devils had just finished celebrating that goal when they added another, as Pappalardo set up Ryan Allard for a score with 6:11 left.
“I was gassed and was skating off the ice,” said Survilas. “I passed the puck to Pappalardo, because he’s always moving. And he got it to Ryan. That was another big goal.”
Roux then did the rest, helping Salem kill a Windham 5-on-3 power play late to clinch the victory.
“In the last two minutes they were on the power play, but I was getting really excited,” said Roux. “It’s exciting to get my first shutout. I’ve been looking forward to getting it for a while. It came in the last (regular season) game, but it happened.”
 The Blue Devils and Jaguars now await the postseason pairings.
“We can’t wait for the tournament,” said Survilas. “And we really wanted to get a win against Windham. They’re a big rival, so we wanted to get this one for the seniors.”
