The folks at Madison Square Garden had a special surprise waiting for Hanks when he showed up at the game as they handed him Wilson after a decade and a half of the two being apart. Hanks and Wilson then led a "Let's go Rangers" chant ...sorta. After all this, the Rangers of course won the game.

Cast Away
is about a FedEx executive (Hanks) who was forced to transform himself physically and emotionally to survive a crash landing on a deserted island. He does this in part by befriending a volleyball, but becomes separated from his friend during a severe storm. This is one of the saddest scenes in the film and includes the classic line, "Wilsonnnn!!!"

We're happy to see these two have found their way back to each other.
