Have you met Tomas Tatar's good luck charm?

If you ask the 27-year-old forward, it just might be young Thea Marie Ouellet, who was cheering him on against the New York Rangers

MONTREAL - Defenseman Xavier Ouellet's wife, Liz Ann, had her cell phone camera rolling at just the right moment on Tuesday night.

She captured footage of the couple's one-year-old daughter, Thea Marie, watching the opening moments of the tilt between the Canadiens and the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

Thea Marie's reaction to Tomas Tatar's goal just 23 seconds into the first period is absolutely priceless, as she applauds the 27-year-old forward for his efforts.

Tatar responded to Ouellet's post on Instagram, calling Thea Marie his "good luck charm."

We don't know if she was still awake and watching when the Slovak sniper scored his second marker of the contest in the middle frame, but we hope she'll be taking in all the action again on Thursday night when the Canadiens battle the Buffalo Sabres at the Bell Centre.
