I forget which part of LOTR is was in, but one of Gandalf's lines is particularily memorable and appropriate for the situation at hand.

"There never was much hope, just a fool's hope."

Just take a look at SportsClubStats and their Canucks page. The current statistical odds of Vancouver making the playoffs this year is at 1.9% as of this morning. If we beat the Wild in regulation, that goes up to 2.9%. Sounds terrible, doesn't it? On the other hand, however, we are only 6 points behind Phoenix for that last playoff spot, and we both have only 9 games left. If we keep going lights-out, and Phoenix falters a bit, there is hope.

Coconuts go!
