As per the Durga stuthi of Arjuna, as per Krishna's advice, one of the
names of Durga is Krishna's sister. The female child that escaped out of
Kamsa's hand and gave him the prophecy of Krishna in Nanda Gokula
is supposedly Durga. Krishna is also Skanda(Durga's son) among 
commnaders-in-chief.
I guess  it is better to cherish what we believe in
 (in our case, Srivaishnava acharyas
and Alwars synthesis) without trying to find 
absolute agreement fromthe whole body of Sanatana Dharmam.

Daasan,
