Mara was the third man in on the fight, you could argue that he should have been assesed an additional penalty AND ejected.
I don't know the rulebook verbatim, but in the case of Orr and the other guy at the end of the 2nd, you could clearly see the officials warning the players before the faceoff with less than a second to go. I'm fairly certain officials have flexiblity to make the 10-min call for a multitide of reasons...
Yes, all of this could have been avoided had the series been properly called from the get go, but they did a good job in keeping it under control tonight, IMO.
