MILWAUKEE -- Retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre says its unfortunate the way things ended in Green Bay six years ago, but that hes proud of his 16 years with the Packers and has no regrets. Favre, interviewed on WTMJ-AM on Friday, talked about his departure from Green Bay and recent efforts to soothe any sour feelings. The team has announced the three-time MVP quarterback will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and have his number retired during the 2015 season. Favre said he has no regrets about his football career. "And that goes from Day 1 to the end," he said. Fans know he played as hard as he could, Favre added. "I laid it on the field every time," he said. Favre retired at a tearful news conference in March 2008, only to change his mind and decide later that year that he still wanted to play, setting up an awkward showdown between him and the team he helped resurrect and lead to a Super Bowl title. He was traded to the New York Jets for what would end up being a third-round draft pick and after one year with the Jets, Favre retired a second time, only to join the rival Minnesota Vikings, for whom he played two seasons. In 2010, the Packers beat Favre and the Vikings twice on their way to a Super Bowl title, led by Favres successor, Aaron Rodgers. Favre retired for good following the 2010 season, while Rodgers went on to win the NFL MVP award in 2011. Favre said he has returned to Wisconsin since leaving Green Bay, coming back about two years ago to hunt with two friends in Clintonville, which is about 40 miles west of Green Bay. He said he hunted for eight days, and wasnt recognized when he visited a local laundry. Favre said he wont coach high school football near his home in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, this year in order to watch his youngest daughter play volleyball at the school. And he expects to return to Green Bay with his wife, Deanna, before next season. "I think you will see us more in Green Bay. The ice has been broken," Favre said. Malik Beasley Jersey .

Spencer Abbott and Trevor Smith scored third-period goals erasing a 2-1 deficit giving Toronto a late 3-2 lead. However, Nick Drazneovic scored with 12.9 seconds remaining to force overtime and Andrew Ebbett scored the shootout winner as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins edged the Marlies 4-3 on Sunday afternoon. "A lot of credit goes to our leadership group, the right things were being said in the dressing room and they emptied their tanks to get us that point," said Marlies coach Steve Spott. "Selfishly, youve got a five on six youd like to see us close out the game, but give Wilkes-Barre some credit, theyre a veteran hockey club and they found a way to get the extra point." Anton Zlobin and Scott Harrington had the other goals for the Penguins (32-20-5), who won for the fourth time in 12 games. With the win, the Penguins improved to 4-3-0 in their last seven against Toronto. Kenny Ryan had the other goal for the Marlies (34-19-5), who picked up three of a possible six points in a three-game, three day stretch over the weekend. "Three out of six points is OK, but were coming down the stretch here, every point is pretty important, we dont want a shootout loss to dictate our playoff standing," said Smith, who is battling a lower-back injury after being slew footed Friday in Lake Erie. "Were going to take it in stride here tonight, but letting goals in the last minute of play is unacceptable." Jeff Deslauriers made 31 saves in the win while Torontos Drew MacIntyre stopped 32 shots. With their goaltender pulled for an extra attacker, Drazenovic forced overtime by one timing an Ebbett feed past MacIntyre. Smith gave Toronto its first lead of the game going backhand, top corner on Deslauriers at 15:59 of the third. "I was looking to pass to Leivo actually, he was there, he opened up for a one-timer," Smith said. "Their d-man took it away and I was kind of all alone, was on the backhand so I just tried to take it a little bitt wider and go upstairs.dddddddddddd" Added Spott: "Goes to show you why hes a special player, but that was an NHL goal." Abbott evened it at 2-2 on a power play, beating a screened Deslauriers for his 14th of the season at 10:56 of the third. The goal stretches Abbotts point streak to three games. Zlobin gave the Penguins their second lead of the game at 18:24 of the second poking home a loose puck for his sixth of the season. Ryan tied it 1-1 at 3:16 shorthanded on a partial break, beating Deslauriers blocker-side from the top of the faceoff circle. The goal broke a five-game drought for Ryan. Jerry DAmigo extended his point streak to six games with his assist on the goal. Moments later, Ebbett nearly gave the Penguins their second lead of the game. But with MacIntyre down and out Ebbetts shot hit the post. The Marlies outshot the Penguins 12-4 at one point of the first period, but had nothing to show for it. Harrington opened the scoring at 17:59 of the first, beating MacIntyre from the faceoff dot. Smith, who spent 75 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last season, admitted to sharing tactical information with his Marlies teammates prior to puck drop. "There were a couple systems-wise things that I let the guys know," he said. "A little bit of special teams that they have the tendency to do all the time. A couple little things here and there that I tried to help us out." The two teams play for a second and final time April 13 at Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Torontos next game is Friday when the team visits Rochester. Notes: Marlies LW Jamie Devane missed the game serving a one-game suspension as a result of receiving an instigator penalty during the final five minutes of Saturdays 4-1 win over Lake Erie. Under rule 46.22 both the Marlies and coach Steve Spott were also fined US$500 each. Devane picked up four minor penalties, a major, a misconduct and a game misconduct for 33 minutes in penalties in the win. The suspension is Devanes second this season. He missed one game in November stemming from a boarding incident.
