He's not really doing a full stop. He's doing a partial stop and then using his momentum to move backwards a little bit before using a backwards crossover to start moving backwards. That's a typical transition.
In warmup tonight I'll try thinking about it as I do it to see if I can come up with a good description for it. The first step, however, is to be able to do a very good hockey stop. If your skates are sputtering across the ice, you'll never have the stability to transition properly.
