Playoffs[edit]

The Red Wings, having finished 1st in the Western Conference and first in the NHL in scoring, were heavily favored to win in their first-round matchup against the eighth-seeded San Jose Sharks, who were making their first playoff appearance in franchise history. Despite outshooting San Jose 218–153 and outscoring them 27–21 in the series, the Red Wings were upset in seven games for the second consecutive playoff year; in Game 7, played on April 30, 1994, the Sharks edged the Wings 3–2 to advance to the second round.[6][7][8]
