The 1990–91 Detroit Red Wings season saw the team return to the playoffs after missing the previous season, despite winning only thirty-four games. Until the 2016-17 season this was the last season when there were more losses than wins by the Red Wings, who were to set a National Hockey League record for the most consecutive winning seasons during the following two decades.
