Florida Panthers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky is close to making an NHL All-Star team for the third time in his career — but he needs a late push in voting to make it.

The NHL will close voting at midnight on Thursday.

Fans can vote on a variety of platforms — including Twitter.

On Tuesday, the NHL announced how voting is going thus far with Bobrovsky among the top four when it comes to goalies.

Vancouver’s Thatcher Demko leads all goalies in votes received with close to 800,000; Bobrovsky is second with 440,000 followed by Boston’s Jeremy Swayman (381K), Colorado’s Alexandar Georgiev (350K), and Boston’s Linus Ullmark (350K).

No other Florida player — Matthew Tkachuk, Sasha Barkov or Gus Forsling — is among the finalists right now.

Sam Reinhart was selected to his first NHL All-Star Game last week.

So, how do fans vote for their favorite player?

Per the NHL:

How to Vote Online: Visit Fans will be permitted to select as few as one Player and a maximum of 12 players per online ballot. Each fan can cast a maximum of 10 ballots per 24-hour period.
