Obviously I'm not the only one who remembers.
He had a great stretch that year but it wasn't the product of playing with Datsyuk.

They combined on only 6 even strength goals all that season and none during Flip's hot streak. At even strength during that period he was playing with mostly Hudler and Samuellsson.

In fact going through his scoring log for his entire career there doesn't appear to be any consistent stretch where Datsyuk was contributing to Flips point totals. They've been centering different lines for pretty much Flips entire career.
