Like a scene from the movie The Wolf of Wall Street, Philadelphia Flyers head coach John Tortorella wasn't leaving.

Tortorella was ejected in the first period of the Flyers 7-0 loss on Saturday afternoon, but he didn't leave the bench without putting up a fight. He received a bench minor and game misconduct with the Flyers down 4-0 in the first period on a night that he was being honored by Tampa for the Lighting's 2004 Stanley Cup Championship team.

Tortorella was tossed from the game by Wes McCauley following multiple penalties called against the Flyers which included a 10-minute misconduct. Shortly after that at the 10:49 mark of the first period, Brayden Point scored a power-play goal for the Lightning to make it 4-0.
