Blues' Josh Leivo: Manages helper Thursday
Leivo provided an assist and added two shots on goal in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.
Leivo rejoined the lineup after sitting as a healthy scratch for two games. He helped out on Colton Parayko's rally-starting goal in the second period. Leivo now has four goals and 11 helpers through 42 contests this season, and he's added 80 shots on net, 48 hits and an even plus-minus rating.

The 29-year-old winger doesn't have a long track record of scoring success, but he's looked good with Saad and Ryan O'Reilly as linemates lately.

Leivo appears to have a steadier path to playing time in his second NHL stint this year.
