Tim Thomas third among goalies in NHL All-Star voting

The NHL [1] released the results of All-Star voting by the fans thus far, and the Bruins are far from well-represented. This means Boston fans either didn’t vote, or they, like everybody else, voted for Sidney Crosby [2].

Crosby leads all vote-getters with 118,755 votes, while no Bruins are currently on pace to get in via the fan vote. Patrice Bergeron [3] is 35th among forwards with 15,020 votes, while Zdeno Chara [4]‘s 41,081 votes are 10th among defensemen.

The most popular Bruins on the ballot is Tim Thomas [5], who is third among goaltenders with 47,646 votes. The odd part is that the two goalies he trails, Carey Price [6] (71,199) and Sergei Bobrovsky (58,101), were both write-ins. Should Thomas not get in through the fan vote, which ends Jan. 3, he can still be selected in the new fantasy draft format.

Thomas leads the league in goals against average (1.49), save percentage (.954), and is tied for the league lead with four shutouts.
