Well Philadelphia, here are your first six All-Stars: Sidney Crosby (PIT), Jonathan Toews (CHI), Evgeni Malkin (PIT), Kris Letang (PIT), Duncan Keith (CHI), Marc-Andre Fleury (PIT).

Yes, that’s right, the Pittsburgh and Chicago crowd made sure to get there players in.

Mike Richards and Claude Giroux led the forwards for the Flyers, but neither could crack the top five. Richards and Giroux finished eighth with 228,828 and ninth with 226,749 votes, respectively.

Danny Briere and Jeff Carter both dropped one spot in standings from last week. Briere ends in 12th with 206,196 votes and Carter in 21st with 116,998. Jody Shelley is the only Flyers who moved up, finally cracking the top 30 to finish in 28th with 61,149 votes.

With Chris Pronger injured, he dropped another spot to finish fourth with 292,944 votes. Kimmo Timonen, after holding fifth position for six straight weeks, slipped in the final count to sixth with 237,406.

Montreal’s Carey Price, who put up a strong run through most of the weeks, but Fleury came out of nowhere the final couple of weeks to win. Sergei Bobrovsky finished in third place with 258,639, the second most for any Flyer and the most for any write-in Flyer.

On Jan. 11 and 12, the NHL will announce the 36 additional players who will join these six in the All-Star Game.
