'All Access' shows emotional end to Stanley Cup Final

Last episode of Showtime series reveals euphoria of Penguins win, aftermath of Predators defeat

One presentation of the Stanley Cup. One summer of celebration, parties and adventures that stretches out for months in the living of it and years in the memory.

There are two teams on the brink of those moments at the start of the fifth and final episode of Showtime Sports' "All Access: Quest for the Stanley Cup," which aired Friday. One will have its season end in devastation. One will go down in history.
