Ouch! I have seen that one before. What happens sometimes when the throwout bearing siezes up it rips off some of the pressure plate fingers. Those become little spears in the bell housing and sometimes puncture the transmission case. Rare, but it does happen. I hope yours is not that bad but it sounds like you already have the gear oil coming out.
