As with free music, hateful comment sections and kitties, the Internet loves itself some viral videos.
Thus, Gotta See It was born to highlight the goofy, the awkward, the jaw-dropping and the laugh-inducing clips that make the rounds among hockey fans.
But these short videos, however hilarious or compelling in nature, have a lifespan shorter than a Groupon — as they are furiously consumed and quickly forgotten.
Well, we tallied up the most-viewed Gotta See Its of 2014 by you, the fans, and decided to re-present them here: The Most Popular Gotta See Its of the Year, in ascending order (click the titles for the full story).
Hit play. Watch. Enjoy. And feel free to spread ’em like mumps.
