PHP/REGEX: Wrap matches in span (Convert from ASP.NET/VB)

Using PHP and Regular Expressions, how can I convert this:
- Hello World

Into this:
<span class="SpecialList">Hello World</span>

This ASP.NET/VB code works they way I want PHP code to work:
input =	RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(input, "^- (?=[0-9a-zA-Z])([^\n]*)", "<span class=""SpecialList""> $1 </span>",RegexOptions.Multiline)
