PowerShell for Print Server

Hi there. Is there a way to run a script in PowerShell and it will list out all of the printers that are currently down on the print server? Often times we get calls from help desk, "hey is the print server down?", or "is such and such printer down?". I would like to have a script and pass that along to help desk to reduce the number of calls from that department for the above mentioned scenarios. Thanks.
