So last night Emily and Shelly decided to tap into that power in order to get Phil 'The Thrill' Kessel selected first in tonight's All-Star Draft. And thus the #PickPhilPhirst hashtag was born. Have you Twitter? Then take up the call and attach the hashtags #PickPhilPhirst and #PPP to every tweet you can.
