Blues defenseman somehow returns to the ice after bending his leg too far backwards

His skate touches his backside. HOW IS HE OKAY?

How someone comes back from bending their leg as awkwardly as Colton Parayko, I have no idea. Parayko left the ice in the second period after this hit that bent his leg completely back, crushing it under himself and looking completely painful in the process. The defenseman came back to start the third period, apparently feeling no side effects of the surely injury-inducing fall.

Ow, ow, OW.
