The Washington Post changed its format in March 1998. The day before this change, Miroslav Satan scored a hat trick in a game against the local Washington Capitals.

The headline of the sports section that day read, "Satan Runs Amok In Washington," and the inside header on the story's continuation read, "Satan In Control In Washington."

You just know headline writers all over the NHL were waiting for this guy to do something significant so they could put up a headline like this.
