The 1992–93 St. Louis Blues season witnessed the Blues finish fourth in the Norris Division with a record of 37 wins, 36 losses and 11 ties for 85 points. In the playoffs, they pulled off a shocking upset of the division champion Chicago Blackhawks in the Norris Division Semi-finals. However, their run ended in the Norris Division Finals, which they lost in seven games to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Blues endured a coaching change early in the season, when head coach Bob Plager resigned after only 11 games. He was replaced by assistant general manager Bob Berry.
