EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Anze Kopitar politely disagrees with the idea that the Los Angeles Kings top line has dominated the Anaheim Ducks best scorers in their second-round playoff series. Since its Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau who suggested the idea, its clear Kopitar and his linemates are doing something right to put the Kings in control of the series so far. Boudreau didnt hesitate to spotlight the ineffectiveness of centre Ryan Getzlaf and longtime linemate Corey Perry after Los Angeles 3-1 victory in Game 2 on Monday night, putting the Kings up 2-0 heading home to Staples Center for Game 3 on Thursday. Boudreau began the game matching up Getzlaf, Perry and Matt Beleskey against Kopitar, Marian Gaborik and captain Dustin Brown. By the third period, he was sending out his former Hart Trophy winner and current Hart finalist against anybody else. "I did it because Kopitars line was dominating them," Boudreau said. "When theyre dominating them, I could be stubborn and leave them out there all day, but we had to move something around to get away from it, and maybe his line could get something accomplished." Kopitar isnt exactly enjoying a breakthrough season, given that he has been one of the NHLs best centres for several years. Yet with a point in every post-season game and his first Selke Trophy nomination, Kopitar is clearly in top form as the Kings chase their second championship in three years. And Kopitar has been playing against Getzlaf long enough to know he shouldnt claim a shutdown victory just yet. "I dont know about dominating them," Kopitar said Tuesday when told of Boudreaus statement. "I think they were playing good, and they hemmed us in our zone for a little bit, too. We know as a line that we can play better, and were going to have to play better." Even when he raised the Stanley Cup as the playoffs co-scoring leader two years ago, Kopitar never got as much international attention as he did this winter. Kopitar is the Kings leading scorer for the seventh straight year, but he also led Slovenia to the quarterfinals of its first Olympic tournament before becoming a first-time finalist for the Selke as the leagues best defensive forward. Kopitar began Tuesday as the leading scorer in the NHL post-season again, with four goals and 10 assists during his nine-game scoring streak. "Hes been doing this for years, and this might be as good as Ive ever seen him play," Kings centre Mike Richards said. Getzlaf knows the pressure is on him to match Kopitars effort when the series moves to downtown Los Angeles for the next two games, and the Ducks captain has met every challenge so far this season. Getzlaf was the NHLs second-leading scorer in the regular season while developing into an impressive leader. He has assisted on all three of Anaheims goals in the series, but Perry has yet to find the back of Jonathan Quicks net. The Ducks meagre offensive output in the first two games against Los Angeles isnt shocking, given the Kings status as the NHLs best defensive team in front of their dominant goalie. Yet Getzlaf and Perry have been able to score on almost anybody this year, and theyre determined to get their teammates going at Staples Center. "I was mad, and Im still mad," Getzlaf said Tuesday. "I want to win, and when we dont win, I get mad. Thats just the nature of my well-being." Even if Kopitars line was as dominating as Boudreau said, the Kings clearly arent overpowering the Ducks in this series. Anaheim was 7 seconds away from winning Game 1 when Gaborik tied it with the goalie pulled, and Los Angeles sat on a one-goal lead for 46 minutes in Game 2 before an empty-net goal in a 3-1 victory. The Ducks are getting most of the series scoring chances, but theyre not getting the second chances and grind-it-out goals that are usually the only way to beat Quick. Boudreau is emphasizing the importance of getting in front of Quick, whose aggressiveness can be used against him by a team with Anaheims four-line skill. "I think weve got to start using Quick against himself a little bit," Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano said. "He challenges the pucks very well. He sprawls out, and sometimes there is room for shooting pucks off his pads and getting rebounds. ... Now its all about dirty goals. Were not scoring enough goals. Guys are getting good looks, but were not scoring." Sonny Milano Jersey .

But they barely paused to soak up the good feelings Wednesday after beating the lowly Milwaukee Bucks 110-100 to notch win No. 48. "Weve got a bigger goal," said Kyle Lowry. Greivis Vasquez -- filling in for all-star DeMar DeRozan, who was given the night off to rest up for the post-season -- scored 25 points to top the playoff-bound Raptors (48-33). Lowry added 24 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 14 points and 13 rebounds, Tyler Hansbrough scored 12 points and grabbed 11 boards, while Amir Johnson finished with 10 points. "Franchise record, (but) were just going to keep pushing and see whats next for us," Johnson said. "Were always looking for the next thing, just have to keep moving." Toronto had won 47 games twice before -- in 2000-01 and 2006-07. Its been a remarkable turnaround for a team that went from 48 losses last season to now 48 wins with one game to go -- they wrap up the regular-season Wednesday at New York. "All it takes is the right chemistry, the right group of guys, and you can do whatever it takes," DeRozan said. "You dont need no big-name players, you dont need this, that. . . what people supposedly say you need. "I think were proof of that, and we continue to keep growing and keep learning and keep building and its on to the next step." The Raptors stumbled out to a 6-12 season start. The about-face came after the blockbuster seven-player trade in December that sent Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings for Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson, and Chuck Hayes. "Im glad we made the trade for those guys, they came in and theyve done an unbelievable job and the coaching staff has done an unbelievable job also," Lowry said. The Raptors never trailed Monday, and were up by as much as 22 points in the second quarter. They took an 84-69 advantage into the fourth against a Bucks team that is guaranteed to finish with the worst record in the NBA this season. But the Bucks showed some fight in the fourth, pulling to within seven points on an alley-oop dunk by Jeff Adrien with 7:27 to play. That was as close as the Bucks would come as Lowrys six points were part of a 12-5 Raptors run that put them ahead by 14 with three minutes to play. Raptors coach Dwane Casey wasnt thrilled with his teams performance. "I know its ringing hollow, but we still have to continue to work to get better," Casey said. "Were not where we need to be, defensively, offensively, for the playoffs. Were not a veteran team who can take three or four games off, and expect to come back and keep that rhythm." Ramon Sessions scored 21 points to top tthe Bucks (15-66) in their 14th straight loss on the road.dddddddddddd Adrien added 19 points. The Raptors remained tied for third in the Eastern Conference with the Chicago Bulls, who beat Orlando 108-95 on Monday, so the seeding wont be determined until the final game Wednesday. The Raptors could play either Washington, Brooklyn or Charlotte in the opening round of the playoffs, beginning Saturday or Sunday. The Raptors opened the festive night by unfurling their second Atlantic Division banner -- clinched last Friday -- from the Air Canada Centre rafters. "It was cool, man. It was really cool," Lowry said. "But Ill think about it after the season, for me personally. Im sure the guys will look back and reflect after the season is over." DeRozan addressed the crowd of 18,821, saying "We want to thank you guys for the support throughout the whole season, and we want you guys to help us unfurl the banner as division champs." DeRozan counted down "3-2-1," as the banner dropped to fireworks and cheers from the crowd. "We fed off our fans, and we got to have the most loyal fans in the league," DeRozan said. "Ive been here through the struggles and the tough times, and our fans still were right there with us along this journey. It felt good to share it with them because they played a major part in it as well." Toronto had only won the division title once before -- in 2006-07, which was also the last time they made the playoffs, losing in the first round to New Jersey. Casey feared the banner celebration might work in the Bucks favour. "I think its great for the fans," Casey said. "(But) if you have anything in your trunks, youre probably going to get upset and come out swinging if you see the other team hanging a banner on you." Casey neednt have worried. The Raptors sprinted out of the gate, assembling an 11-point lead with three minutes to go in the first quarter on a three by Vasquez. They led 32-19 heading into the second. The Raptors continued to pull away in the second, a Nando De Colo three-pointer giving the home team a 22-point lead about seven minutes before halftime. But the Bucks closed the quarter with a 15-6 run and Toronto led 59-46 at the break. The Raptors went back up by 20 late in the third quarter on a three by Lowry, and led 84-69 with a quarter left to play.
