In what way?

I remember Coach Crawford ranting that "They got no call" when Moore hit Naslund post game, but I don't recall him tacitly putting a bounty on him. It was Naslund's teammate, Brad May who mentioned the "bounty" reference in a post-game interview.

As an aside, I wonder if that Moore hit on Naslund occurred today, under the climate we have when it comes to the knowledge on the negative effects of concussions and how these type of hits causes not only concussions but retaliation, how many games Moore would have been suspended in an attempt to dissuade future hits and the threat of retaliation.
