2012 NHL All-Star Voting: Boston Bruins' Goalie Tim Thomas Overtakes Lead

Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas has taken over first place in goalie voting for the 2012 NHL All-Star Game.

After trailing to Toronto's James Reimer for most of the voting, Thomas has erased a deficit that was approximately 5,000 votes and turned it into a lead of approximately 10,000 votes. Thomas now has 420,504 votes compared to 410,342 for Reimer. Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury is a distant third with 349,332 votes of his own.

Thomas has been stellar again this season, compiling a 16-5 record with a 1.84 goals-against average and .943 save percentage that is second only to teammate Tuukka Rask. Boston's goaltending has been a major difference-maker in the team's charge up the Eastern Conference standings, which the Bruins now top with 49 points after winning seven straight games and 21 out of 24.

Zdeno Chara is fifth in voting for defensemen.
