MONTREAL – With just one week left to go until the polls close, Marc-Andre Fleury has knocked Carey Price out of the top spot for the NHL All-Star game this January.

The Penguins’ netminder racked up over 52,000 votes in the past week alone leap over Price for the All-Star starting job with a 311,623 to 309,598 margin. This marks the first time since voting began that Price isn’t leading the way amongst NHL netminders on the road to Raleigh.

Still sitting comfortably in sixth place just ahead of Alex Ovechkin, Michael Cammalleri earned nearly 20,000 votes last week, bringing him within 3,600 votes of knocking Patrick Kane from the fifth-place slot among forwards. To make it into the starting lineup at the midseason classic, the Habs’ winger will have to catch Evgeni Malkin and his 289,878 votes to crack the Top 3. Write-in candidate Tomas Plekanec isn’t far behind Cammalleri in 10th place, followed by Habs captain Brian Gionta in 14th.
