Probability of 0-3 and player scores a hat trick

If the probability of a 0-3 scoreline is 0.083 and the probability of a certain player scoring a hat trick is 0.05, what is the probability that the score is 0-3 and the player scores the hat trick?

You can assume said player plays for the team that wins.

seems like odds of getting a hat trick (>=3 goals?) is not going to be independent of number of goals scored. so bascially i don't think theres going to be any way to tell given your data. that 0.05 is marginal, ie computed over all # of goals scored per game. If the probablities were independant, you would just multiply to find the probablity that both occur, but they surely are not, and so further info is needed. keep it crunch.
