It won't help you this time, but may be something to consider in the future. I usually toss a hop bag(s) into boiling water for about 15 min. then put the hops for dry hopping in the bag(s) and drop them into the fermenter. It makes it easy to retrieve the hops or just to keep them from clogging the transfer tube. Make sure the bag is plenty big for the hops you are using so that they don't form a clump and severely reducing the effectiveness of the hops. This method is probably not as efficient as just putting the hops directly into the beer, but makes it easier to deal with.
