Find Empty Distribution Groups and Email Results if they are empty - powershell

I have searched and searched and have only found 1 script online that I can't get to work correctly.  I need a powershell script that will find empty distribution groups and email the name of the empty distribution groups.

I only want the email to be sent if it finds a distribution group that is empty.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

$groups = get-distributiongroup 
foreach ($group in $groups)
$members = get-distributiongroupmember $
if ($members -like $null) {send-mailmessage -to <emailaddress> -from <fromaddress> -smtpserver <servername> -subject "a group has no members" -body "$ has no members in it"}

That should do it.
