powershell - is there an easy way to query AD for a SPN -like '*my-sql-instance*'?

I am trying to add a check for the SPN in our SQL review script. I will have the ability to build a variable with the SQL server name instance name.

When I use CMD > setspn -L DOMAIN\USER I get a list that I can search and see if the SPN has been created or not.

There must be a way I can use powershell to get that list, then search the list for a string value.

Just to be specific, I am looking for a way to use powershell to query Active Directory for a value LIKE 'my-sql-intance' name. I just need to return SPNs that look like they match the string value.

I had to install and import the "get-ad" modules, but then it worked like a champ.
