No, you cannot recover those logs. They are volatile stuff. Rebooting will delete the RAM used, and there is no way to get them back. If you need something persistent, you need an external monitoring tool (but I don't know of any doing that).

Try setting something up yo regularly off load the logs
Then you can look after the fact
It is not a complete immediate solution.. but it might meet your needs of who was recently connected and what transpired

Your question is answered: "Can I?" - "no". The log is volatile, and you cannot recover it after power off or reboot.
