The 1989–90 NHL season was the 73rd season of the National Hockey League. Twenty-one teams each played 80 games. The Stanley Cup winners were the Edmonton Oilers, who won the best of seven series 4–1 against the Boston Bruins. The championship was the Oilers' fifth Stanley Cup in the past seven years.

This also marked the first time that all three New York NHL teams made the playoffs in the same season. A feat which would be repeated only twice more in the 1993-94 NHL season and the 2006-2007 NHL season.

As of the 2008-09 season, it was the last season that the Detroit Red Wings missed the playoffs.

Finals

The Edmonton Oilers defeated the Boston Bruins in the 1990 Stanley Cup Finals, four games to one. For the Oilers, it was their fifth Cup win in seven years, and their only one without Wayne Gretzky. In Game 1, Petr Klima scored at 15:13 of the third overtime period to give the Oilers a 3–2 win; this game remains the longest in Stanley Cup Finals history (Longest NHL overtime games), edging both Brett Hull's cup-winner in 1999 and Igor Larionov's game-winner in 2002 by less than 30 seconds. In game five at the Boston Garden on May 24, the Oilers won 4–1. Craig Simpson scored the game-winning goal. Oilers goaltender Bill Ranford was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as Playoff MVP.
