Keeping in touch with the Blues in Sochi
FEB 17, 2014 12:15p ET
The St. Louis Blues' nine Olympians have been in Russia for a week already and are still going strong, with seven players among the top three seeded teams going into the medal round this week.
We scoured the Internet -- OK, we looked at Twitter and Instagram -- to get a Blues-eye view of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.
The Blues' Olympic contingent comprises David Backes, T.J. Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk (United States), Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester (Canada), Alexander Steen and Patrik Berglund (Sweden), Vladimir Tarasenko (Russia) and Jaroslav Halak (Slovakia). Here's what several of them have been up to.

Berglund posted the following photo on his Instagram account "bulish21" with the following caption: "Uppe i bergen och ska jobba fram Sverige !"
That translates, according to Google, to: "mountainside and will work until Sweden"
Or, maybe it doesn't really translate.

Oshie has gained more than 150,000 followers on Twitter since he helped the U.S. beat Russia in the shootout Saturday.
Berglund showed his Instagram followers one way to get in some cardio as he rode a bike to one of Sweden's games.
