Vancouver – nobody knows if Josh Leivo will help the Vancouver Kanax, but Jai Beagle should.
The 33-year-old control center was only five games in his four-year, $ 12-million contract with the National Hockey League team when he broke his forearm buying Mike Hopfman's shot in Florida on October 13.
Beagle was out on the ice defending a lead late in the third season. The cannons won this game.
The cannoks won once in the last 12 games, all without beagle. The Angry Strike began after the cannacks blew a pair of two-tier leads and lost shots in Detroit and Buffalo.
They've sapped the arm winning goals late in the third season in their past two games, home losses against Vegas and Dallas, and on Saturday against the stars fired off another lead at the bottom of the last minute.

In the last 17 games without Beagle, whose away is compounded significantly by two-way center Brandon Sutter's shoulder dislocation on October 29, Kanax penalty killer has allowed 18 power-game goals.
So, yes, the return of Beagle should help. All the cannons get out of Leivo, Monday morning sales of the Toronto Maple Leafs for the clear price of second-tier minor carcone, will be a bonus to the desperate team.
Beagle and Leivo should play Tuesday at Rogers Arena against the Minnesota Wild.
"One way (to help) is just to be here, and your presence is felt," Beagle said Monday's rigorous practice. "Work hard every day in practice and have a smile on your face.
"Once you have long been in the NHL, you know what it takes to win, it's the little things, the details, it just makes sure that in every situation, you're winning the pack of batteries and doing everything Be able to compete as hard as you can, it really comes down to compete. "
Bearley won a Stanley Cup last spring with the Washington Capitals, whose longest losing streak last season was three games. With a pile of young players and prospects who need to learn how to win in the NHL, the cannons thus valued Beagle's experience and leadership qualities that they overpaid for him in a free agency.
When Travis Green was invited to Monday, when the Cayks grew up with Beagle's return, he immediately referred to the center's leadership.
During their 1-9-2 crash, the cannas have probably struck at least six points because they found the experience and nerve to play by critically stretching late into games.
"I think he understands the evolution of skilled players; he saw it first with the guys in Washington," Green said of Beagle. "So I think he understands what some of our young players are driving on a nightly basis." "I think he's a good closing board in the room with his leadership qualities.
"We are probably quick-tracking (young players) a little bit of the injuries, and the injuries have probably cost a bit of points, and this is the fact that over the last 12 games, we can easily have a Another five, six points, but many do you want to say, we could easily have more. "

After a 10-6-1 start, the cans have plummeted to 11-15-3 and are within four points Monday from the bottom of the NHL. Waiting for you, they are also only five points out of a playback place in the Western Conference.
Beagle's return comes in the week after No. 1 Defenseman Alex Edler, Top Whiter Brooch Buster and Backup Goalie Anders Nilson returned from long-term injuries.
Sutter and Sven Baerchi stay out, although Canucks general manager Jim Benning told reporters on Monday there is good news of the cancellation specialist Baertschi consulted in Detroit and the Swiss winger should be skating soon.
Beagle he felt helplessly watching the Cannes fall.
"It's one thing to be silly and watch your team do good," he said. "It's great, but it's the hard times, that's when you really want to get back here." "I'd like to return the last two weeks, really inching, just wanted to be in the moment with the guys .
"It's time for a team to grow, and the ability to build a character in the locker room does not matter how long it takes, we have to continue to grow and be positive."
In this case, the cans have a lot of building materials. They are so desperate for help that Leivo, an intense forward jettisoned by the leaps to create a resource place for William Nander, may debut on Vancouver's top line life center Bo Horvat.

Leivo, 25, has 14 goals and 28 points in 84 NHL games – less than half the number of games the 2011 third-round pick played in the American Hockey League on its way to the leaps.
To get him on their 23-man roster, the cannacks winger winger Brendan Leipsik, who was climbed Monday through the Los Angeles Kings. Vancouver needed another go to activate Beagle and could return Rookie Center Adam Gaouette to the Utica Comets on Tuesday.
It's Symmetry's Monday transactions. Leipsik, also a former third-round design peak, was given the chance to play with Horvath shortly after his trade to the Vegas Canals in February 26. Leipsyk has two assists in his Canuck debit and six points in his first week with the Team.
