Considering the line up they had last night I don't think Philly did poorly.
As for the Staios play with Gagne, it looked like a probable penalty the first time I saw it from the normal above ice angle. When they showed a replay from the front of the play it clearly showed Gagne grabbing Staios's stick and holding it as they went down the ice. It looked like Gagne was trying to draw the penalty instead of trying to break free. After seeing that angle I thought it was a good non-call.
