eInk screens have a plastic top layer but there are very thin glass layers inside. This means you can end up cracking or damaging an internal layer but still have a completely intact top layer. The diagonal lines are usually an indication that the glass inside has cracked and where they join up is generally where the impact or pressure was.

Great that Kindle CS are replacing your Kindle though!
I'm willing to bet there was a curious janitor last night
