Get-MailboxDatabase -identity EXCHdb* -Status |
  Sort-Object AvailableNewMailboxSpace -Descending |
  Select -First 1 ServerName,Name,DatabaseSize,AvailableNewMailboxSpace

Open in new window

if you want a visible output. If you are only interested in the db name:
$largestDB = Get-MailboxDatabase -identity EXCHdb* -Status |
  Sort-Object AvailableNewMailboxSpace -Descending |
  Select -First 1 -Expand Name

Open in new window
