    Claude Giroux needs Flyers fans to help get the Orange and Black on the cover of NHL13.

    The Flyers might not be raising the Stanley Cup this season but their star could still be earning quite the honor. Claude Giroux has only one player left standing between him and the cover of NHL 13.

    Only Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne blocks Giroux's path to video game cover glory.

    It seems like the perfect matchup to have Giroux, the leading point scorer for the Flyers this season, face one of the best goaltenders in the NHL. But this matchup will not be decided on the ice, rather it will be decided by the fans online.

    The polls will remain open until voting ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday.

    Voting began as the first round of the playoffs wrapped up in April. Giroux, the No. 1 seed in the tournament, defeated Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban, Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar and Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin -- who had taken out Giroux's teammate Scott Hartnell in the quartefinals -- in the previous rounds.

    The winner will be announced at the 2012 NHL Awards Show in Las Vegas on Wednesday, June 20.

    Fans can vote up to 10 times a day so get going to make sure Giroux graces the cover of EA Sports' NHL 13.
