    the end of this season, ending a 17-year career marked by podium finishes at all
    three Grand Tours.Rodriguez made the announcement on Monday during a rest day in
    the Tour de France at a news conference organized by his Katusha team.I still
    enjoy this sport so much, but I am 37 years old, Rodriguez said in Andorra,
    where he has been living and training for many years. One day, I will have to
    stop anyway, and I prefer to do this when I am still riding at a high
    level.Nicknamed Purito, which is Spanish for small cigar, Rodriguez was fifth
    overall after the first week of the Tour, just 37 seconds behind race leader
    Chris Froome.I will give my maximum like I did my whole career, Rodriguez said.
    I would be happy to finish my Tour career in top 10, but of course I still dream
    of another podium in Paris.His best results in the Grand Tours were second in
    the Giro dItalia (2012) and Spanish Vuelta (2015), and third in the Tour (2013)
    and Vuelta (2010, 12).He also won the Tour of Lombardy twice as well as the
    Fleche Wallonne classic, and ended the season at the top of the UCI rankings
    three times.Rodriguez is expected to enter the Rio de Janeiro Olympics road race
    next month.For the moment, I have no idea what will be my last race, he said. In
    theory, Rio and the Spanish Vuelta are still on my program.

    Maple Leafs game as a fan, Mats Sundin returned to Air Canada Centre as a
    Vancouver Canuck.Over seven years later, Sundin was back to see his No. 13
    raised to the rafters, and Marner was there, too, scoring his first NHL goal to
    help Toronto roll over the Boston Bruins 4-1 for its first win of the season on
    Saturday night.Marner got his first goal in only his second game, joined on the
    scoresheet by fellow rookie and Toronto native Connor Brown. Their efforts came
    on the heels of Auston Matthews historic debut, when he became the first player
    in the modern NHL to score four goals in his first game.Its a lot of excitement
    and obviously theres going to be (a) learning curve and growing pains throughout
    the way, but theyve been playing great so far, teammate James van Riemsdyk said
    of the youth movement.Brown and Marner opened the scoring about 10 minutes
    apart, landing the Leafs in the record books once more. Toronto became the first
    team since expansion in 1967-68 to have rookies combine for the first six goals
    to start a season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.Brown had the games
    first goal after barely two minutes, joined shortly after by the 19-year-old
    Marner and then van Riemsdyk a few minutes after that.The fourth overall pick of
    the 2015 draft, Marner took a pass from Tyler Bozak just outside the Boston blue
    line, gained the offensive zone with space and fired a shot far-side past
    goaltender Anton Khudobin.A native of nearby Thornhill, Ontario, Marner followed
    with an exuberant celebration.To finally be playing in front of these fans for
    real, its pretty crazy, Marner said. And for the first one to go in in front of
    them, its kind of sweet.Outside of Matthews, Marner was perhaps Torontos most
    dangerous player in a season-opening overtime loss to Ottawa on Wednesday. He
    had six shots in the 5-4 overtime defeat, following that up withh a goal and
    four more shots in 15-plus minutes against the Bruins on
    Saturday.ddddddddddddHes shown a knack for getting behind the oppositions
    defense, finding a seam and some space for his first goal on Saturday.Thats just
    good anticipation and good smarts where he can pick his spots to use his speed
    to get himself in those situations, van Riemsdyk said.Marner said hed give the
    puck from his first goal to his parents.Anton Khudobin allowed four goals on 20
    shots for Boston. David Pastrnak scored his third goal in two games this
    season.Overall, not a good enough effort on our part, said Bruins coach Claude
    Julien. And at the end of the night, you dont deserve the win.The worst team in
    the NHL last season, the Leafs have quickly shown themselves to be a much faster
    and highly skilled entity in the early days of this season, led by Marner,
    Matthews and 20-year-old William Nylander. Often that youth shows itself in less
    effective ways though, including a messy second period in which Torontos
    sloppiness with the puck led to chances and sustained offensive zone time for
    Boston.Id like us to obviously take better care of the puck and so well learn
    how to do that, Leafs coach Mike Babcock said afterward.Frederik Andersen gave
    up only one goal on 25 shots following his wobbly five-goal outing in Wednesdays
    season opener.Matthews was quiet on Saturday after his unparalleled showing
    earlier in the week. He was held point-less and finished with only two shots in
    nearly 17 minutes.Game notes The Maple Leafs retired 17 sweaters in a pre-game
    ceremony, altering a long-standing team policy where jersey numbers were honored
    but not retired.UP NEXTBruins: Conclude their season-opening three-game trip
