Just ten minutes into the game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Flyers' head coach, John Tortorella, was ejected following a heated exchange with a referee.

Recently, the Flyers' CEO shared his thoughts on what went down.

Philadelphia Flyers' CEO Dan Hilferty Backs Up John Tortorella After Controversial Ejection

The CEO of the Flyers, Dan Hilferty, defended Tortorella's ejection and he went as far as to express his willingness to cover any fines that might come from the NHL.
Check out his full statement:
"I'm really proud of Torts for standing up for his/our team.," he said "This new era of Orange is about having each other's backs. Last night, Torts had our collective backs.. I respect any action the league might feel a neeed to take but if it includes a fine, I am paying it."

It's pretty clear that Tortorella is among the most dedicated coaches in the NHL, with some saying he'd go to great lengths for his players. At the end of the day, Tortorella's main goal is to ensure the Flyers are fighting strong and staying competitive. He never shied away from showing emotions on the ice, and we hope he doesn't change.
