NEW YORK -- Sidney Crosby leads all players in voting for the NHL all-star game for a second straight week.

The Pittsburgh Penguins captain finished first with 218,791 votes, the league announced Monday.

Montreal goaltender Carey Price climbed into second place with 145,726 votes, the most among write-in candidates, and Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos is a close third with 141,818 votes.

The all-star game will be played in Raleigh on Jan. 30 with a new format. Captains will select the two teams from the pool of available players in a live draft.

Fan balloting will account for six players -- one to start at each position -- while the NHL's hockey operations staff will select the others.

The league leaders by position are: Crosby, Stamkos, and Chicago's Jonathan Toews (139,570) at forward; Chicago's Duncan Keith (137,642) and Philadelphia's Chris Pronger (137,549) on defence; and Price in goal.
