For American Winter Olympics fans, Thursday's slate of results brought the good with the bad.

Day 6 of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi was highlighted by a clean U.S. sweep in the men's freestyle skiing slopestyle event, which made its Olympic debut. On the other side of the spectrum, U.S. fans were disappointed with the results in the women's speedskating 1,000-meter race. 

Still, the U.S. is right up there with the world's best in terms of total medals so far. Here's a look at the updated medal count through six days of action in Sochi.

Germany has set the gold standard so far during the winter games, as the country's first-place finish in the team luge relay brought home the nation's seventh gold from Sochi. It also marked a dominant close to the luge events for Germany.

Thursday's quartet was comprised of four 2014 gold medal winners, as men's champion Felix Loch, women's winner Natalie Geisenberger and pairs champs Tobias Arlt and Tobias Wendl formed a super group. They didn't disappoint in the relay event, combining for a time of 2 minutes, 45.649 seconds, edging out Russia by 0.030 seconds.

Speaking of the host country, Russia bid adieu to one of its greatest all-time Olympians on Thursday, as 31-year-old Evgeni Plushenko ceremoniously took the ice for the men's figure skating short program before bowing out due to a back injury. Still, it served as a nice curtain call for the skater who helped propel his nation to the team figure skating gold, his fourth career Olympic medal in his fourth Winter Games.

Once Plushenko was gone, the stage belonged to Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu, who set a new world record with a score of 101.45 in the short program.

But for Americans, Thursday was all about the men's freestyle skiing slopestyle event, as U.S. athletes Joss Christensen (gold), Gus Kenworthy (silver) and Nick Goepper (bronze) took over the podium.

Following his first-place finish, Christensen shared his excitement via Twitter.

As for the disappointment in the women's 1,000-meter speedskating race, best friends and rivals Heather Richardson and Brittany Bowe were expected to be major medal threats, but finished seventh and eighth, respectively.

Here's a look at the event-by-event results for Day 6 of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
