Moments ago in tonight game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Tampa Bay Lightning, Johnny Tortorella went on a classic tirade against the referees that led to him getting ejected from the game.


The Lightning took a commanding 4-0 lead over the Flyers in the first ten minutes of the game, already leading Torts to be riled up when the referees caught his attention, and turned into the direction of his rage. Torts was absolutely giving it to the referees when the ejected him, and at first he flat out refused to leave the bench.




After yelling a few more expletives towards the refs and standing his ground as long as he could, Tortorella finally did have to leave the game.

We'll have to keep an eye out for his post game press conference, which could end up being an all time classic Tortorella moment. He's been able to tone himself down to adjust to the new standards of NHL coaches, but deep down, Tortorella is still the crazed competitor he's known to be.
