Datsyuk nets hat trick, but no curly fries

Pavel Datsyuk scored three goals last night, but we won't be able to take a box score to Arby's today and claim some free food.  

Datsyuk opened the scoring 15 minutes into Russia's 6-1 blowout of Denmark at the IIHF World Championships in Cologne, Germany on Sunday.  Datsyuk would score two more times and add an assist on an Evgeni Malkin goal to lead the Russian team.  Datsyuk joined the team mid-tournament after the Red Wings were defeated in the Western Conference semifinals last week by the San Jose Sharks.

Russia currently leads Group E at 4-0, and has yet to lose a game in the tournament.  The United States won its second straight contest after dropping their first three, shutting out France and Khazakastan by a combined 14-0 score.  The Americans are out of contention but are trying to qualify for next year's worlds.  

The Pittsburgh Tribune was apparently unimpressed by Datsyuk's hatty, instead proclaiming "Malkin paces Russia in easy win at Worlds."  I know you're supposed to provide the local angle and everything, but three goals always beats one, even in Pittsburgh.

Perhaps a headline such as "Datsyuk, Malkin pace Russia in easy win at Worlds."  See, all you had to do was add a name and a comma.
