On Tuesday, the NHL [1] announced the six players chosen in the fan vote for the upcoming All-Star Game. Only the Penguins [2] and Blackhawks were represented, as Sidney Crosby [3], Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang and Marc-Andre Fleury [4] will represent Pittsburgh, while Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith will go from Chicago.

In last week’s voting update, Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas [5] was fourth among netminders in votes. He still has the opportunity to be one of the 36 additional All-Stars announced on Jan. 11. Thomas leads the league with a .945 save percentage and a 1.80 goals-against average. He is tied for the NHL [6] lead with five shutouts.

Fleury, meanwhile is fifth in the league with a 2.31 GAA and 12th in the league with a .918 save percentage. He has 17 wins to Thomas’ 18. Detroit’s Jimmy Howard leads the NHL with 20 wins.

The 2011 All-Star game will be played on Jan. 30 in Raleigh, N.C.
