Voting Irregularities?

According to an email I just received from the NHL, Alex Ovechkin is now behind Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby--and!--Evgeni Malkin in voting for All-Star Game starters.

"Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby holds the top spot among Eastern Conference vote-getters with 247,854 votes," the email says. "The leading vote-getters by position are forwards Crosby, his Penguins teammate Evgeni Malkin (156,469) and Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals (112,501)."

The reason I bring this up is because only seven days ago Crosby had an East-leading 83,664 votes and Ovechkin was second with 63,921.

So where did Malkin come from? Has A.O. gone from Calder Trophy winner to the third most popular young player in the league? Or are Pittsburgh fans stuffing the ballot box?

Those are the facts. You decide.
